Ohlone College Opening Site for Observing Solar Eclipse - Press Release, Office of College Advancement
Fremont, CA—Ohlone College in Fremont will open the top floor of the 5-story parking structure on campus for interested community members to observe the partial solar eclipse occurring on Monday, August 21, 2017. The top floor of the parking structure will be closed off to cars and open for observation from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon. Parking will be free during the eclipse viewing times.
The Ohlone College Fremont campus is located at 43600 Mission Boulevard. The parking structure is reachable at the top of Pine Street off Mission Boulevard. Enter the campus at Pine Street and drive to the top of the hill and follow signs to parking and the top-level viewing area. Please note that Ohlone College will not be selling nor providing solar viewing sunglasses for this solar eclipse observation.
Safety Precaution: During a total solar eclipse, when the sun's disk is completely covered by the moon, it is safe to view the eclipse with the naked eye. However; only a partial solar eclipse will be viewable in this region of California, so skywatchers should never look at a partial solar eclipse without proper eye protection. Looking directly at the sun, even when it is partially covered by the moon, can cause serious eye damage or blindness. Ohlone College accepts no responsibility for eye damage caused by community members and campus guests coming to view the partial eclipse without proper eye-wear or telescope filters.
