No Glasses Needed: Herzing-Toledo’s Eclipse Viewing Draws Crowd, Media
On Aug. 21, people across the country gathered outside to watch the solar eclipse, the most widely visible eclipse from North America in nearly 100 years. Herzing University-Toledo was lucky to have Tom Knoedler, a budding meteorologist and co-chair of the General Education Department, on site to help students and staff view the eclipse safely.
Throughout the day, students visited Knoedler’s viewing station, fashioned out of a telescope and poster board, to get an up-close glimpse of the sun with its rays partially covered by the traveling moon. The event drew a crowd during peak viewing time, and even earned some local media attention.
