Eclipse Chasing: Heavenly Excuses to Travel
MOUND MUSEUM LECTURE SERIES SPOTLIGHTS
A total solar eclipse is the most spectacular natural event you can ever witness. The Moon glides slowly in front of the Sun and at just the right moment, in just the right place, the Moon completely covers the Sun. Dean will share his adventures traveling around the world in search of solar eclipses, lunar eclipses, transits, and other astronomical events. Plus, he will give some tips to safely observe and photograph a solar eclipse such as the full solar eclipse that will be observable over much of Ohio on April 08, 2024.
