Event Details

One of the most amazing sights ever witnessed by human eyes is coming soon. In fact, it will be your last chance to see a total solar eclipse in the United States until 2045 - are you ready? Join NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador Dan Price to prepare for the April 8th eclipse! He will discuss solar safety, what solar eclipses are, and how and why they happen. Learn about current and historic solar science, and why eclipses make us all special.

Dan Price is a NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, informal educator, and newspaper columnist. His weekly “Bluegrass Skies” articles have appeared in the State Journal for more than three years. A lifelong amateur astronomer and student of science originally from Buffalo, New York, Dan has been conducting astronomy outreach programs in Minnesota and Kentucky for over a decade. Price's passion for public education stems from the belief that a better understanding of the way the world works is a cornerstone of compassion and community.
