About 3,000 Broncos gathered on the Quad in the heart of campus on Aug. 21 for an eclipse viewing party, where they had a front row seat for the Great American Total Solar Eclipse. The sun disappeared behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight from 10:12 a.m.-12:52 p.m. Idaho’s clear, blue summer skies offered a great view. Boise State physics professor Brian Jackson and students traveled the state before the eclipse, as well as gave presentations on campus, to prepare viewers for this rare solar event.
