14433 • Once in a Lifetime: Astronomy and Experiencing the Total Solar Eclipse

Get ready for the most widely anticipated astronomical event of the century! On Monday afternoon, August 21, 2017, all of North Carolina will experience a partial solar eclipse. The Moon’s shadow will cross the continental U.S. for the first time since 1979. A sliver of the western part of the state will experience the total solar eclipse for nearly two and a half minutes. NCCAT’s Cullowhee campus is in the path of totality and is the perfect spot for viewing the phenomenon. Join us for a once in a lifetime program exploring some of the biggest misconceptions in astronomy and culminating with the experience of a total solar eclipse.
