Total solar eclipses are rare occurrences at any given location. The last one visible from anywhere in the continental United States was in 1979, in the Pacific Northwest. That's why the August 21, 2017, eclipse is a very big deal. It will offer an estimated sixty-five million people the chance to participate in this celestial phenomenon.
Astronomy educator Chap Percival is passionate about this eclipse, especially about inspiring children to view it. This occasion will not only provide a teachable moment, it will also be an extraordinary experience that can't be appreciated through video or photographs. You really do have to be there!
Go See the Eclipse explains what an eclipse is and why it's so special, describes the thrill of seeing a total solar eclipse, and gives specific advice on where to go, what to take, and how to prepare. The book also includes activities you can do with children to help them (and you!) understand what is happening in an eclipse and calls on everyone to do what they can to help the children in their lives witness this exciting, potentially life-changing spectacle.
