Mark Reinemann will present a brief program on what you should know to watch the 2024 solar eclipse, which occurs on April 8. Registration isn't necessary; this program is for all ages. If you don’t already have a pair of eclipse glasses, there should be some available at the program. To see the solar eclipse, three things must be in alignment: the sun, the moon, and you! 

This eclipse is special because the sun is going through a period of heightened activity, which will make the outer layer (corona) appear much larger and more dynamic than at the last eclipse. Also, there is a slight chance that a comet may be visible if you have a pair of binoculars to use during totality. The next total solar eclipse after this one will be in 2044. Come and learn how an eclipse occurs, so you will be ready to stand in the shadow of the moon.
