On August 21, 2017, up to 500 million people in North America will be able to experience a solar eclipse either in its partial or total phase. In this unique event the shadow of the Moon will cut a 70-mile wide path across the entire country, the first time for a continent-wide eclipse in almost a century. For those lucky enough to be in the path of totality, they will experience mid-day twilight and see the ethereal corona surrounding the disk of the Sun.

In this talk, Dr. Doug Roberts, an active astronomer and the Chief Technology Officer at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, will discuss the science and wonder of eclipses and provide some pointers for seeing this very special event.
