Science Pub: There Goes the Sun: The North American Total Solar Eclipse of 2017


Tuesday, July 18, 2017 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

The Sun is the most powerful object in our sky. The Sun’s corona is invisible except during a total solar eclipse when it is revealed for only a few minutes.

On August 21, North America will experience a total solar eclipse when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon fully blocks the Sun. This is the first total solar eclipse to target the continental U.S. since 1979, the first to run from the North American Pacific Coast to Atlantic Coast since 1918, and the first total since 1776 with its path of totality completely within the continental U.S. Discover how this once-in-a lifetime natural event will soon play out across Oregon, and the rest of the country.
