The Great American Solar Eclipse is now over. Athens residents and people around the state joined millions across the country for the first total eclipse we’ve had in nearly a century. Organizers held an eclipse ‘blackout’ in Sanford Stadium and provided free certified eclipse glasses for the first ten thousand guests. Early estimates show the turnout was much larger.
Members of the UGA women’s basketball team, including sophomore, Stephanie Paul, helped to hand out eclipse glasses to attendees.
