This talk will discuss the historical and modern cultural context of the solar eclipse in society, what solar eclipses are, the basic science of why eclipses occur, and where to see these exciting upcoming celestial events.
We will also demonstrate safe observing of these events using common household objects.
The Colorado Springs Astronomical Society (CSAS) will have 100 solar eclipse viewers to hand out at the conclusion of this presentation. Weather permitting, we will also have solar telescopes set up to provide safe, amazing views of the Sun.
