Nick James - Eclipses
4 July 2017
Starts: 19:20
Ends: 22:00

Due to the lucky chance that the Sun and Moon appear about the same size in our sky we are treated to the majestic phenomenon of a total solar eclipse. This talk will describe the history of eclipses, what can be seen during a total eclipse and why they are scientifically still very useful. The speaker will also talk about ways to observe and image these eclipses and will look forward to the great US eclipse coming up in only a few weeks.
