Wednesday, July 19 –
On August 21, 2017 the United States will enjoy a rare eclipse of the sun. For those of us in Seattle, it will appear as a partial eclipse, but a swath of the nation will be treated to a total solar eclipse, the most awe-inspiring sight in nature. Author and eclipse chaser David Baron will explain why you should emulate some great Gilded Age astronomers and get yourself to the “path of totality.” His book, American Eclipse: A Nation’s Epic Race to Catch the Shadow of the Moon and Win the Glory of the World, will be available for purchase and signing. Doors open at 6:40 p.m. event starts at 7 p.m. Cost $5 for general public, free for members.
