Join the Davis Astronomy Club at Explorit on Saturday, May 13 starting at 7:30pm where we will discuss the what, when, where, why, how, etc. of solar eclipses in general, and of the historical Monday, Aug 21, 2017 total solar eclipse in particular. 

Only viewers fortunate to be in the narrow band across the continental USA - from Oregon coast in the west, where the first sighting will be at 10:15 PDT, to South Carolina coast in the east where, the last land sighting will be 1 hour and 33 minutes later - will experience totality when the sun would be completely obscured by the moon's shadow. Viewers on either side of this narrow band will experience different degrees of partiality. 

We will also emphasize the safest ways to witness this celestial phenomenon.

After the discussion indoors, we will have a star party outdoors, weather permitting. Please bring your telescope and binoculars if you have them. 

All meetings of the Davis Astronomy Club are free, and everyone is invited.
