Chasing Shadows: The 2017 Total Solar Eclipse in America

August 7, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

A total eclipse of the Sun with a perfect view of the solar corona is possible from only one place in the solar system: Earth. On August 21st, the Sun’s disk will disappear for a maximum of 160 seconds. Where do I have to be to see it? How can I watch it safely? When will my next chance be to see a total eclipse? What can I expect to see? Join Tim Knauer, Director of the University of Kentucky’s MacAdam Student Observatory, as he answers these questions and many more! Also, solar eclipse glasses will be available for attendees.

Please register for this free event online or at the Library. For more information, contact Diane Dehoney at 352-2665 x108 or diane@pspl.org.
