Subject: On August 21st, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible in the contiguous USA for the first time since 1979. The track of the moon's shadow crosses diagonally across the nation from Oregon to South Carolina. Inside the 68 mile wide path of totality, the Moon will cover the Sun as the landscape is plunged into an eerie twilight, and the Sun's corona is revealed for over 2 minutes.

We will watch a video that describes how amazing a total solar eclipse can be. Where are the best places to view it? How does weather factor in? Find out what it is like to stand in the Moon's shadow - and get ready for August 21st.

As usual, refreshments will be served.
