INDIANA — The entrance to Weyandt Hall, home to the natural sciences at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, became an impromptu outdoor astrophysics lab on Monday afternoon as students and faculty members observed a partial eclipse of the sun.
By 2 p.m., small groups armed with instruments such as solar-eclipse glasses, camera-obscura cardboard boxes, pin-holed sheets of paper, welder’s hoods and cell phones had gathered near the building’s front door just east of Oakland Avenue.
Clouds were building for a brief thunderstorm after 3 p.m. But around 2:40 p.m., the sky above the Oak Grove was clear enough for a glimpse of the solar-lunar peekaboo.
