This talk will discuss the historical and modern cultural context of the solar eclipse in society, what solar eclipses are, the basic science of why eclipses occur, and where to see these exciting upcoming celestial events. We will also demonstrate safe observing of these events using common household objects.

Weather permitting, we will also have solar telescopes set up to provide safe, amazing views of the Sun.
