Methow Conservancy “First Tuesday” Program

“An Eclipse to Remember”
Tuesday, August 1, 7:00-8:30pm at the Sun Mountain Lodge Pasayten Room

The first total solar eclipse (TSE) visible in the contiguous United States in 38 years and the first across the entire US in 99 years will happen Monday, August 21, 2017.  The Moon will pass in front of the Sun, casting its shadow across all of North America.  David Ingram, amateur astronomer and newly minted eclipse chaser, will present the beauty, the history and the celestial mechanics of solar and lunar eclipses.  The challenges and logistics of safe and effective viewing the 2017 TSE will also be discussed.  David will also share a bit of information on Dark Skies. David is the President of the Boeing Employees’ Astronomical Society; a leader in the Dark Skies NW Chapter of the International Dark Sky Association; and a Vice President of the Seattle Astronomical Society

 

The program is free and open to everyone. For more information, contact 996-2870 or mary@methowconservancy.org.
