Total Solar Eclipse Discussion

On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible in the continental United States. This total eclipse will only be visible on a narrow track stretching across the United States
from Oregon to South Carolina, and parts of the Lowcountry are in the direct path! No other country will get to see the total eclipse this time. This is the first total eclipse of the Sun visible from all 48 contiguous United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii) since 1979. Join BCLS for this historical event.

Astronomy Prof. Misty Brown will talk about the history of solar eclipses, how they happen and why. Prof. Brown will also advise us on how to view the eclipse safely and where best to witness the event.
