BJU Eclipse Experience

Aug. 21, 2017 — 1–3 p.m.

Greenville, S.C., is one of the few places in the world where you’ll be able to see the 2017 total solar eclipse—when the moon completely blocks out the sun—and you’re invited!

Kids, families and schools are invited to join us on campus for lots of hands-on science activities and fun, interactive observation.

The next total solar eclipse visible in the U.S. won’t be until 2024. Come experience this unforgettable day with us!
