A total Solar
Eclipse is coming your way...on August 21, 2017. Have you made
your plans for this once-in-a-lifetime experience? Even though
it's over a year away, this rare American celestial event will
sweep the nation from the Pacific to the Atlantic. (Nearly
everyone in the contiguous U.S.A. can reach this total solar
eclipse within a one day's drive.)
On Friday, January 22, 2016, Jodi McCullough, President
of the MVAS and eclipse-chaser will present "Chasing Eclipses:
Getting Ready for 2017." Jodi and other MVAS members will share
their recent total solar eclipse experience in Svalbard Norway,
March 20, 2015. She will also give us pointers on how best to
prepare for nature's phenomena in 2017.
presentation is for everyone, not just astronomers!
