In case you missed it yesterday:

A) There was a total eclipse of the sun
B) The University of Nebraska was all over it.

As you can see from the NASA map below, Nebraska was one of several states that had a great view of the eclipse.

Several University of Nebraska students and faculty members got in on the sweet sun-blocking action: University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Engineering professor Eveline Baesu was at Holmes Lake where she took photos that will eventually be published in National Geographic magazine.

The University also had a watch party and they were kind enough to share some photos with us courtesy of Craig Chandler and UNL Communications.

Incidentally, if you bought eclipse sunglasses for yesterday's event that has an ISO number of 2312-2, hold onto them. They're good until the next eclipse in 2024. If not, toss 'em.
