Description: There is much more to the skies than just stargazing—some of nature's more spectacular astronomical phenomena were, at times, terrifying to our ancestors. This free information session will help you understand the science of the upcoming solar eclipse. Join Dr. Peggy Hill as we cut through the superstition and learn valuable tips for safe viewing; we will also talk about local astronomical resources, upcoming events, and opportunities to learn more. 5-7 p.m.
