Solar experts Ken Alderson and Tom Bibb of the Louisville Astronomical Society (LAS) will be here on this date to answer your questions about this once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event when the moon moves between the earth and the sun on August 21 at 2:27 p.m. obscuring 96% of our Private Star! Alderson and Bibb will give a Power Point presentation on the Eclipse, practice with you on how to observe the eclipse safely using solar glasses for eye protection, observing with #14 welders glass, how to build a pinhole projector out of a cardboard box and what to expect on Eclipse Day. Free Solar Glasses will be provided and, weather permitting, solar telescopes will be available to view the sun as it awaits its big show. Practice Makes Perfect! And we want you to have a perfect solar eclipse experience! For more information on the 2017 Great American Eclipse, go to the LAS website at www.louisville-astro.org.
