UAHT to Host Solar Express Annular Viewing Party


On October 14, 2023, the Hope, Arkansas, area will see a partial Annular Eclipse. On that special day, the University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana will host a viewing party and cultural education program to celebrate the event. Free solar eclipse viewing glasses will be available to attendees. The viewing party is just one event in our lineup of Solar Express activities leading up to the Total Solar Eclipse Event on April 8, 2024. We hope you can join us.
