☀️RMSC Science on the Edge Lectures: Preparing for Totality🌑
On Monday, April 8, 2024, Rochester will be in the direct path of a total solar eclipse for the first time in almost a century. A total solar eclipse occurs when a portion of the Earth is engulfed in a shadow cast by the moon, which fully blocks sunlight.
Join us as Dan Schneiderman discusses the science and history of solar eclipses, the impact the eclipse will have on our region, and how to prepare for this extraordinary astronomical opportunity
