SIU forms eclipse viewing committee

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

The next full solar eclipse will happen in 2017 and Carbondale will be one of the best places in the world to see the show.

Southern Illinois University sees the eclipse as an opportunity to attract all those spectators that want the best view.

On Tuesday, Oct. 13, leaders there made an effort to make sure all of those viewing elements are in place by creating an eclipse planning committee.

The group is a joint effort between John A. Logan, SIU and Carbondale tourism.
