Join us for a discussion with Dr. Nordgren for on the awe-inspiring topic of a solar eclipse from the history of dread to today’s tourist attraction. A solar eclipse is an awe-inspiring event that throughout history has caused dread, foretold the fall of kingdoms, and stopped armies in their tracks. In a clockwork heaven it is something both predictable, yet rare, natural, yet utterly foreign to our everyday experiences. From eclipses of sun and moon we have measured the size of the moon, shape of the Earth, and mapped out the world. Today, they are no longer omens of doom, but tourist attractions that thrill millions where they occur in an event both interplanetary, yet deeply personal. They are the moment the sun and moon align with you!
