TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN!
Wednesday, March 6th
7PM

It’s an event that always makes front page headlines: A total eclipse of the Sun! And one is coming our way on April 8th.

Eclipses of the Sun and Moon are dramatic natural events which have been described in records going back for centuries in many civilizations. Ancient astronomers discovered certain cycles of occurrence of eclipses, which then allowed prediction. Accurate prediction could command power and prestige. In this presentation we’ll examine the mechanics of what causes eclipses as well as how you can safely observe and enjoy this amazing astronomical event.

Joe Rao was an on-camera meteorologist for Verizon FiOS1 News.
