The All-American Total Solar Eclipse of August 2017
Alex Filippenko, UC Berkeley
A total solar eclipse, when the Moon fully covers the bright disk of the Sun and reveals its breathtaking corona, is one of nature’s most magnificent spectacles – truly an awe-inspiring experience that moves some people to tears. On August 21, 2017, for the first time in 38 years, the very narrow path of a total solar eclipse falls on the continental United States. Come learn about total solar eclipses and how to view this one!
Make sure to mark your calendars for Aspen Science Center’s Solar Eclipse Day, Monday, August 21st, 9:30 am to 1:00 pm, Pitkin County Library. Free and open to the public!
