The public viewing starts at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday near the north parking lot of the Center for Health Professions in Bentonville on the north side of the campus.

A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes directly between Earth and the sun. The moon will begin blocking the sun, from the viewing site on the campus, at 4:42 p.m., with maximum eclipse at 5:48 p.m. The viewing will end when the sun slips below the horizon at 6:33 p.m.
