In preparation for the Annular Eclipse on Saturday, October 14, join us for this talk by distinguised data visualizer Ernie Wright — (SSAI) Data Visualization Specialist – NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Ernie blends the art of storytelling with the precision of science to unravel the mysteries of the skies.

In this talk, dive deep into the mechanics of an eclipse. With the aid of advanced visualizations, Ernie will demonstrate the dance-like relationship between the Sun, Earth, and Moon, illuminating the intricate play of shadows that results in these awe-inspiring events. Beyond mere understanding, witness firsthand the process behind the creation of the detailed eclipse maps many have come to rely on.

And as a special treat, get an exclusive preview of the paths of the upcoming annular eclipse of 2023 and the total eclipse of 2024.
