On August 21st 2017, every state in the US will experience a solar eclipse. Here we will discuss some of the basics you'll need to know if you are planning or helping to coordinate an eclipse event, or if you'd like to know a little bit more about what to expect.
Each month we will cover three topics:
1. Solar Spotlight: What do you really need to know about the sun to understand what's happening during the eclipse
2. Eclipse Tips: Learn about some fun ideas to engage kids (and adults!) in eclipse fun, fitting for the run up to eclipse day, and also for the main event!
3. Straight from the Scientists: Learn about cutting edge research being done in the field of solar science, straight from the resarchers!
