Countdown to the Aug

The total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, will be the first total solar eclipse visible across the United States in nearly a century.  The average person will get a few chances in a lifetime to see a partial solar eclipse, but the opportunity to observe a total solar eclipse is, for many, a once-in-a-lifetime chance to witness one of the most awe-inspiring sights of nature.  This talk will cover the basics of eclipse mechanics, how to safely observe a solar eclipse, what one can expect to see, and information specific to the August 21, 2017.  No prior knowledge of eclipses is required, and questions are welcomed and highly encouraged!
