ABOUT THE PROGRAM & PRESENTER
The total solar eclipse of 1878 brought the world's greatest astronomers to the American West, just 7 years after Colorado Springs was founded. Tourists crowded our streets, while astronomers carted a huge telescope to the summit of Pikes Peak.
Come hear about one of the most exciting scientific events to occur in our city’s early history.
Steve Ruskin has a PhD in the History and Philosophy of Science, and is the author of the book America’s First Great Eclipse.
