SOLAR ECLIPSE TALK
Williamstown, 1:30 p.m.
Prof. Jay Pasachoff of Williams College will talk about the forthcoming August 21 solar eclipse at the Milne Public Library. Though the path of totality of the eclipse goes coast-to-coast from Oregon to South Carolina for the first time in 99 years, Williamstown will have only a partial eclipse, with 71 percent of the sun's diameter covered by the moon. Pasachoff, who will be viewing his 66th solar eclipse, is an expert on viewing eclipses safely.  He will be discussing how to observe partial eclipses and he will have many pairs of safe solar glasses available for free distribution, courtesy of the Moore Foundation.  Prof. Pasachoff will also be describing (in a non-technical, illustrated way) some of the research about the sun at the eclipse that his summer students, colleagues, and others will be carrying out.
