Monday August 17th will be an exciting experience for those of us experiencing a partial eclipse. Our own Kim Small, astronomer, planetarium director, and K-12 science coordinator, will be in Nashville on Monday where she will experience a total eclipse, along with a few other UDSD teachers and their families. Ms. Small will be posting to our Facebook page throughout the day.
The Upper Dublin Public Library has a fantastic collection of resources about the eclipse, including safety and citizen science projects.
Please be vigilant about safety during the eclipse. Even a brief glance directly at the sun, without protection, can cause damage to the eyes. Sunglasses offer no protection. Special solar viewing glasses meeting the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard are recommended.
