This is called a partial solar eclipse, and it isn't almost as impressive as the view of a totally eclipsed sun within the umbra. In addition to falling under the path of totality this time, the city and university will fall under it again when the next solar eclipse crosses the 2024. Warning: don't look directly at it with your naked eyes-instead, use certified eclipse glasses or the pinhole method described here.
