Join one of the country’s most famous Astronomers and learn all about the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse!

Each attendee will receive two pairs of eclipse glasses and a visitor's pass to the Observatory with their ticket purchase. The talk will take place at Clark Montessori to accommodate a larger crowd.

He is the author of the books ‘Bad Astronomy’ and ‘Death From The Skies’, and writes the thrice-weekly ‘Bad Astronomy’ newsletter that keeps subscribers apprised of the latest sky news. He was the head science writer for “Bill Nye Saves the World” on Netflix in 2017.
