Friday, September 29; 12:00—1:00 PM
Location: Meeting Room
Join Lara Eakins from the University of Texas Department of Astronomy us to learn about the history and science of solar eclipses and how you can safely observe the TWO that will be visible in central Texas in October 2023 and April 2024.
*This is a Zoom AND In-Person presentation. Please let us know your preference (located in the registration field) so we can have a good idea of how many plan to be here. All will receive the Zoom link regardless.
**All who attend In-Person will be given complimentary “eclipse-glasses” so you can watch the eclipses safely when they occur. The glasses will also be available at the library in the days after the program if you cannot make it In-Person, but only while supplies last!
