Eclipses! Saturday Presentation

This Saturday, March 13 at 7 PM Greg Buchwald will give a talk entitled “A Dozen Years of Chasing the Shadow: Observing Solar Eclipses”  As always, the event is free and open to the public — please join us! 

Greg has travelled the world to observe 8 Solar Eclipses.  He will share photographs and videos of his experiences from places like the Galapagos Islands, China, Turkey, Zambia and more!  Additionally, Greg also volunteers at the Yerkes Observatory in Lake Geneva, home of the world’s largest refractor telescope.  He was part of the team that found pre-discovery images of Pluto taken at Yerkes.  These were very helpful in calculating precise orbital elements for the Dwarf Planet.

Here are some of his images:
