A partial solar eclipse on Thursday has people looking forward to a total solar eclipse in the coming years.
MU Department of Physics and Astronomy hosted a viewing party Thursday afternoon at Laws Observatory so the community could catch a glimpse of the partial solar eclipse.
Ten-year-old Samuel Kingsley was at the event with his family and said he’s seen a blood moon before, but never a solar eclipse.
“It looked like someone bit the corner off the sun,” he said.
Samuel was just one of over 50 people who came out to watch the eclipse.
