Rochester eclipse: SUNY Brockport offers premiere destination to view total solar eclipse; Town Hall for more info set for Feb. 5

BROCKPORT, N.Y. – SUNY Brockport is offering the opportunity to view the 2024 total solar eclipse at one of the premiere eclipse destinations in the world.

While Monroe County is in the path of totality for the April 8 eclipse, the southeast corner of the SUNY Brockport campus is located directly on its center line, which means it will witness roughly five additional seconds of totality than anywhere else.

An event pass is required for any guest to drive onto the SUNY Brockport campus on April 8.

The pass includes:

  • A parking spot
  • Four pairs of solar eclipse glasses
  • Commemorative stickers
  • Access to food trucks
  • Live entertainment (beginning at 11 a.m.)

Event passes are on sale now.

SUNY Brockport will host a Town Hall to discuss its plans for the eclipse with community members on Feb. 5, from 7 to 8 p.m., in the Tower Fine Arts Mainstage Theatre on Holley Street.
