Facebook Live session on eclipse is Friday

The SIU Social Media Team, part of University Communications & Marketing, will host a Facebook Live session with Mat Kaplan, host and producer of Planetary Radio, and Michelle Nichols, master educator from Chicago’s Adler Planetarium, on Friday, April 21, at 10:45 a.m. Both will be on campus to discuss SIU’s plans for the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse.

Planetary Radio airs on WSIU radio as well as another 150 radio stations and online. Kaplan will serve as host on Aug. 21 at Saluki Stadium, the primary viewing location. The Adler Planetarium is one of the university’s partners for the eclipse activities, and Nichols will assist in the programming that day.

You can join Friday’s live session on the SIU Facebook page. Kaplan and Nichols will respond to viewers’ questions as time allows.

If you aren't available at the specified time, you can replay the archived video later in the day on our page.
