Lecture by Prof. Kevin McKeegan University of California, Los Angeles On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible in the continental United States for the first time in almost 40 years. During a total eclipse the Sun is completely hidden by the Moon, the sky becomes dark, and the faint atmosphere (corona) becomes visible - looking like a beautiful halo. The eclipse will be total along a track stretching from Oregon to South Carolina. In Los Angeles the eclipse will be only partial with 2/3 of the Sun being eclipsed. Kevin will discuss a few historically important eclipses, some general eclipse phenomena, and where and how to view the total eclipse.
