Undaunted by a cloudy forecast, the UW-Green Bay community gathered outdoors to witness and celebrate the total solar eclipse (Wisconsinites in the Northeast saw about 80%). With safety in mind, faculty, staff, students and Phoenix family members shared eclipse safety glasses and homemade pinhole projector boxes to observe the solar phenomena. We even heard there were eclipse cookies given out. The weather held, with the sun peeking through the clouds for most of the afternoon. A couple of crafty employees made a Phoenix projection tool that reflected the eclipse in every hole. Groups gathered in the quad outside the University Union on the Student Services plaza, outside the Cofrin Library and outside of Laboratory Sciences.
