Physics hosts eclipse viewing, Nov. 8
The "drop-in" event from 7-10 p.m. will feature small telescopes set up outside the Math & Science Center as well as continuous presentations inside the building's planetarium featuring live (or, in the case of cloudy skies, recorded) images from the rooftop 24-inch Cassegrain telescope.

The totality of the eclipse will begin at 8:06 p.m. and will be over around 8:30. Unlike a solar eclipse, which is dangerous to view directly with the naked eye, looking at a lunar eclipse is totally safe.

For more information, call 404-727-7862.

An article in the Oct. 27 Emory Report incorrectly stated that the Passages mentoring program run by the provost's office is open exclusively to women faculty. In 2001-02, the program began pairing male mentors and mentees.
