Once in a Lifetime: Astronomy and Experiencing the Total Solar Eclipse at NCCAT

NCCAT’s Cullowhee campus is in the path of totality and is the perfect spot for viewing the phenomenon.

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. Join the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching, a national leader in professional development, for a special program “Once in a Lifetime: Astronomy and Experience the Total Solar Eclipse” in Cullowhee August 20–21.

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.

The program number is 14433.
