Archived Webinar Series: Interpreting the Total Solar Eclipse of 2017 !
For the first time in over a century a total solar eclipse will be visible over the entire United States, August 21, 2017. This spectacular total solar eclipse will be visible within a 70-mile wide path stretching across the continental U.S. beginning in mid-morning on the Oregon coast, crossing the United States, and finally disappearing on the South Carolina coast by mid-afternoon.
This eclipse will be a unique and powerful opportunity for sharing the excitement of science and the wonder of the Sun and Moon as they create a total solar eclipse on Earth.
The webinar series covers basics about solar eclipses, touches on NASA's research on the Sun, Moon and the Sun-Earth connection, and explores activities, resources and ideas for connecting the eclipse experience with major interpretive themes in parks, refuges and other interpretive sites.
