In anticipation of the Solar Eclipse on August 21, we're exploring the skies. This program will focus on the massive fireball that is the center of our solar system. Expect to see some spectacular photos, and prepare to be amazed by what you learn about our immense and ever-changing sun.
Our guest speaker is James B. (Jim) Kaler, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy at the University of Illinois. He has received many awards for his scientific contributions, and has published nearly 20 books, including The Ever-Changing Sky, Extreme Stars, and The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Stars. He operates two websites - Skylights, which provides weekly information on the sights of the sky, and Stars, which features the Star of the Week. .
