Welcome back to The Ear, The Eye’s podcast dedicated to documenting, detailing, and excavating Columbia’s history!

Urban light pollution has never stopped Columbia students from looking at the stars. Reporter Amy Rupert revisits a total solar eclipse nearly a century ago that dominated campus. She finds that even though eclipses are exceptionally moving events, interest in astronomy on campus is commonplace. Since the 1925 eclipse, organizations, researchers, and students have all found themselves looking skyward from Columbia’s campus.
