Volunteers Needed: Solar Eclipse Observing Event

20 Mar 2024 12:30 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Great American Eclipse of 2024 is just around the corner. To accommodate those who would like to see the eclipse but can’t or won’t be traveling to the path of totality, DAS is planning to hold a special partial solar eclipse observing event at DU’s historic Chamberlin Observatory on Monday, April 8, weather permitting. We need volunteers to set up and operate solar telescopes and binoculars on the park lawn for public observation, and at least one volunteer to help sell eclipse glasses (while supplies last).

What: Partial solar eclipse observing event

When: Monday, April 8, 2024, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. MT

Where: Chamberlin Observatory, 2930 E. Warren Ave., Denver

If you’re able to help with this event, plan on showing up between about 10:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to set up. We recommend that volunteers bring and wear sunscreen and a hat. The observatory will not be open for tours, but will be open for restroom access.

Please let Mark Christman ( know if you would like to be among the volunteers.
