NB Total Solar Eclipse - Nature Moncton February Meeting

NB Total Solar Eclipse 2024
February 20th, 2024 at 7:00 PM
Mapleton Park Rotary Lodge

Presenter: Curt Nason

On April 8, 2024, the Moon’s shadow will race across the central half of New Brunswick, an event that has not occurred in most of the province since before 1900. As we look forward to this once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon, we are fortunate to be joined by Curt Nason, a long-time member of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and the Saint John Astronomy Club, who will prepare us to get the most out of the April eclipse. Curt, who is honoured to be the namesake of the asteroid “10052 Nason,” has been interested in the night sky for over 60 years and still feels 10 years old when stargazing. His presentation will explain why total solar eclipses occur so rarely in any one location, what you might see on the 8th of April, where to watch it, and how to observe it safely.

This will be a virtual presentation that will be shown on the screen at the Mapleton Rotary Lodge. The audience present and the virtual audience will both be able to interact with Curt.

All are welcome, Nature Moncton member or not.
