What's a Solar Eclipse and How to Prepare for One
Tuesday, April 18, 2017/6-8pm
Challenger Learning Center @ HCC

On August 21, 2017, the first total solar eclipse visible from the continental United States in almost 40 years will take place. From Oregon to South Carolina, millions of people will gather along the path of totality to experience this tremendous opportunity. The greatest duration will take place between Marion and Anna, Illinois and will last about 2 minutes and 40 seconds.

Not sure what a solar eclipse is, or what path of totality and greatest duration mean? Are you interested to know how or where you can observe the solar eclipse?

CLC staff will answer these questions and more through demonstrations and hands-on activities. Each registered participant recieves a copy of "The Great Solar Eclipse" booklet and a pair of solar eclipse viewing glasses. This class is open to students ages second grade through adult. For second though eighth grade students, parent or guardian must also enroll and attend this class.
