Solar Eclipses, the Sun, and Your Phone

On August 21st, a shadow will sweep diagonally across the United States, forming the path of a total solar eclipse.  Parts of North Georgia are in this narrow path of totality, and North Georgia will not be so close to a total solar eclipse again in over a lifetime.  Come discover how eclipses occur, what we know about the Sun, and how a historical eclipse helped you get the GPS on your phone! Presented by Lesley Simanton-Coogan, the Planetarium Director and a Lecturer at the University of North Georgia in the Department of Physics.

Everyone attending will receive a pair of solar eclipse viewing glasses.
