Free Public Talk on August's Great Eclipse of the Sun

When: Wed., July 26, 6:30-7:30 p.m. 2017

Astronomer Andrew Fraknoi will give a free, non-technical, family-oriented talk on “August’s Eclipse of the Sun” in the Walters Community Room at the Oakland Main Library. Fraknoi, the author of a new children’s book on eclipses, When the Sun Goes Dark, will describe how eclipses work, why they are one of nature’s most spectacular sights, exactly when and where the eclipse of 2017 will be visible, and how to observe the eclipse and the Sun safely. At the conclusion of the program, everyone attending will receive a pair of safe eclipse-viewing glasses.
