The 2017 Total Solar Eclipse: Chasing Shadows Across America

Speakers: Frank Summers, Carolyn Slivinski, Jessica Kenney, Office of Public Outreach, Space Telescope Science Institute

On August 21, 2017, the Moon will pass directly between Earth and the Sun, creating the magnificent minutes of a total solar eclipse. The lunar shadow will pass across the United States from Oregon to South Carolina, allowing this spectacular celestial event to be seen by millions. Even those not along the path of totality will experience the remarkable sights and atmospheric changes of a partial solar eclipse. A group of speakers from STScI’s Office of Public Outreach will cover what you need to know to experience, understand, and delight in the first coast to coast total solar eclipse since 1918.

Host: Dr. Frank Summers

Recorded live on January 10 , 2017 at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD, USA
