On Aug. 21, there will be an eclipse of the Sun visible throughout North America. People in a narrow path from Oregon to South Carolina will see a spectacular total eclipse, with the Moon briefly covering the Sun, and day turning into night. Everyone else, including those in the Bay Area, will see a partial eclipse, where the Moon covers a good part of the Sun.
Everyone attending the event will receive a free pair of safe viewing glasses for observing the sun. Copies of Professor Fraknoi’s new children’s book on eclipses, When the Sun Goes Dark, will be available for sale and signing after the talk. Like the book, the discussion will be appropriate for children 10 years of age or older, and adults.
