Talk: Partial Solar Eclipse and Total Solar Eclipse Coming Our Way!
September 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm | Free
On Saturday, October 14th, 2023, the Greater Rochester Region will get to experience a partial solar eclipse which will be the perfect warm-up for April 8th, 2024, as we’ll 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, the Eclipse Partnership Coordinator at the RMSC (Rochester Museum & Science Center), discusses the science & history of solar eclipses and how to prepare for this extraordinary astronomical opportunity.
