On August 21, a five-hour drive will place you in the path of a total solar eclipse, but all of Iowa will experience a deep partial eclipse. Brent Studer, Adjunct Professor of Astronomy at Kirkwood Community College, will offer a free presentation on the topic tonight. Learn about the circumstances under which eclipses occur, and what you can do to be ready for the first total solar eclipse visible in the continental United States since 1979. ISO- and CE-certified solar eclipse glasses will be made available to 50 attendees for only $3.00 each.
