Ring of Fire: UWG to Commemorate 2017 Eclipse with Unique Research Trip, Community Observation

For the first time in a century, a total solar eclipse will cross the country on Aug. 21. Advances made in transportation, technology and communications since 1919 provide scholars at the University of West Georgia a unique opportunity to study Earth, the sun and their interaction. UWG scientists and students are set to make the most of this celestial event with a research trip near Lexington, S.C. The College of Science and Mathematics also plans to host a community observation on campus at the UWG Observatory.

The place we call home makes up just a pinprick inside the Milky Way galaxy. This galaxy exists inside an even larger group of galaxies called a supercluster. Scientists estimate there are at least 10 million superclusters in existence. Despite the mind-boggling nature of our own minuteness, the future of the human race depends on how we sustain this world.
