Total Solar Eclipse

Lecture, Weds 13th December, – “Chasing the Shadow: the Total Solar Eclipse of 21st August in the USA” by Dr Andy McCrea and Terry Moseley

A Total Solar Eclipse is almost certainly the most amazing natural sight you will ever see in your life.


Andy and Terry have seen a dozen TSEs between them, plus a couple of Annulars, and a few more which were clouded out. They have been to Bulgaria, Turkey, Zambia, China, Australia, the Faroes, Indonesia and the USA, plus Spain and Tanzania for the Annulars. But the latest one in the USA was a total success for both: Andy observed in Idaho and Terry was in Wyoming. They will show us the highlights of this amazing experience, give some details of other forthcoming eclipses, and show you why they  keep on 'Chasing the Shadow' all around the world!


Doors open about 7.15pm. There is free parking available on the campus in the evenings. Admission Free, including light refreshments. We are located in the Bell Theatre, Department of Mathematics and Physics, QUB – details here……
