What is it about total solar eclipses that inspire people to journey to the far corners of the world to stand within the moon’s shadow for a few fleeting moments? This presentation will focus on the Great American Eclipse of 2017, including a personal account of this historic event by Richard Sanderson, who traveled to the path of totality in Tennessee. The program also will feature a look at future total solar eclipses that will be visible in the United States and around the world.
Presented by Richard Sanderson, Curator of Physical Science, Springfield Science Museum
