Bell Co. Museum - Explore the Science of Solar Eclipses

Join Liam Finn NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador for an in person talk on Solar Eclipses in the wonderful Bell County Museum in Belton Texas. Syzygy, besides being a fun word to say, is a rare alignment of three celestial bodies. In this presentation, we will explore the science and wonder behind this incredible phenomenon of solar eclipses. 2024 offers Americans another chance to see a total solar eclipse that will captivate sky watchers across the United States. We will dive into the details of these eclipses, examining their paths and characteristics, as well as exploring the science behind their occurrence.

You will learn about the different types of solar eclipses, including total eclipses, annular eclipses, and partial eclipses. We will discuss the unique features of each type and what you can expect to see during each.

We will also examine how modern science has advanced our understanding of these celestial events. Finally, we will provide tips and advice for viewing solar eclipses safely and effectively. Whether you are an experienced sky watcher or a newcomer to astronomy, this presentation on Syzygy and the upcoming American solar eclipse promises to be an informative and exciting journey into the cosmos to prepare you for the event on April 8th 2024.
