Two eclipses are crossing over most of the U.S. in the next few months! The first is an Annular Eclipse on Oct. 14, 2023, and the second will be a Total Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024. An eclipse can be an awe-inspiring celestial event that drastically changes the appearance of the two biggest objects in our sky: the Sun and Moon. It also gives us the opportunity to study our Sun, Earth, and our space environment.
Join us for a live discussion on how eclipses happen, the different types of eclipses we can see, what we can learn from them, and how and where you can experience these upcoming events – even if you can’t see it in person!
Reminder: It is not safe to look directly at the Sun and special eye protection is required for viewing any type of solar eclipse.
