Observing the Great American Eclipse–July 24
The path of “totality” of the August 21, 2017, solar eclipse, will sweep across the United States from coast to coast for the first time in 99 years–since 1918
In an illustrated talk, Williams Astronomy Professor Jay Pasachoff will describe to Club members how & why they & their families and friends would be dazzled if they travel into the zone of totality. This important swath across the continental United States is only 70 miles wide, and reaches from Oregon to South Carolina. We’ll learn why that is it that only within that band will the excitement of the eclipse be substantial. He will also tell us how to observe the eclipse safely and how to avoid overstating the hazards, and we’ll learn a little about the many “citizen science” projects taking place around our nation.
