Peak darkness over the stadium will be at 2:38 p.m., so be sure to arrive before then!

• Optimal viewing from the stadium
• Free eclipse viewing glasses to the first 10,000 guests.
• Concessions
• Views from around the world on the jumbo screen
• Giveaways & more!

Sponsoring partners: Georgia Athletic Association, Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, Dr. John Knox, UGA Atmospheric Sciences Program, Department of Geography, and Professor Karl Espelie.
