Astronomer Andrew Fraknoi will give a non-technical, family-oriented talk on “Getting Ready for the All-American Eclipse of the Sun in August.” Fraknoi, the author of a new children’s book on eclipses, When the Sun Goes Dark, will describe how eclipses work, why they are one of nature’s most spectacular sights, exactly when and where the eclipse of 2017 will be visible, and how to observe the eclipse and the Sun safely.
Everyone who buys a copy of the book at this event will receive a pair of safe viewing glasses for observing the Sun. A book signing will follow the discussion of the eclipse. Like the book, the discussion will be appropriate for children 10 years of age or older, and adults.
Free but an RSVP is encouraged.
