When: Sat., Aug. 5, 2-3:30 p.m. 2017
Astronomer Andrew Fraknoi will give a free, family-oriented, illustrated talk on the eclipse of the Sun coming to North America on August 21st. The talk will be held in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room at the Berkeley Public 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. All attendees will receive a pair of safe eclipse-viewing glasses.
