Total lunar eclipse will be webcast from Rome March 3


A team from UND will travel to Rome, Italy, to provide the world with a live webcast of the March 3 total lunar eclipse. Only those located in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East will be able to witness the eclipse. The team consists of associate professor of physics Timothy Young, associate professor of computer science Ronald Marsh, and physics graduate student Tricia Johnson. UND’s eclipse webcasts regularly attract viewers from around the world. Many viewers participate in the event by posting questions and conversing with other viewers on the UND webcast chatroom. The UND team also uses live audio to answer viewer’s questions and to provide viewers with updates regarding the progress of the eclipse. The live webcast can be viewed at http://www.sems.und.edu.
