Astronomy Class Travels for Eclipse
On Monday August 21st, 2017, the Mead Astronomy class attended a viewing party as guests of the University of Nebraska-Kearney. The students arrived on campus and were treated to a short campus tour, including a brief presentation at the planetarium, and visits to other campus buildings. The group returned to Cope Stadium to observe the total solar eclipse. Lunch and refreshments were provided by the university. The group returned to Mead shortly after totality. The students greatly enjoyed seeing this once in a lifetime experience.
