A photo of the eclipse
Parth Sabharwal, a graduate student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, captured this image of the eclipse from an office in Wilder using a standard solar filter. “The solar eclipse was one of the most stunning visuals I’ve ever seen in my life,” says Sabharwal, who studies ultracold quantum optics in the lab of Assistant Professor Kevin Wright. “That it’s a rarer occurrence in countries near the equator, like India, where I come from, made it all the more special. I particularly enjoyed fielding questions from my friends on the physics behind eclipses and related phenomena.” (Photo by
