The solar eclipse on April 8 was visible in Bethlehem beginning after 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. Students and faculty gathered outside to witness the solar event, with many donning special solar eclipse glasses and using telescopes. The eclipse was the first solar eclipse visible in the Lehigh Valley since 2017.
