Totality Poster 16x9

Explore the incredible phenomena of Eclipses, both Lunar and Solar. How and why do they occur?  What can we observe and learn from these spectacular displays of nature? Take a look at how eclipses helped prove the theory of general relativity and look forward to upcoming eclipses learning where to see them. From spectacular space environments to the very human experiences that happen when you are caught in the shadow of the Moon and the Sun is plunged into a total solar eclipse, this program will help you understand these fascinating events.  Take a special look at the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse and future ones visible here in Maine.  The program includes a tour of the night sky as viewed from Maine!
