Clouds didn’t stop hundreds of people from flocking to Austin Community College District (ACC) to watch the total solar eclipse. Almost all of ACC’s campuses were in the path of totality during the rare event on Monday, April 8, 2024. 

The college hosted watch parties at four campuses: South Austin, Highland, Round Rock, and Cypress Creek. The parties included opportunities to view the clouds and sun through special ACC telescopes. Faculty and staff were also on hand to discuss the phenomenon and answer questions.

Check out photos from the eclipse watch parties below.
