Become an eclipse expert! We’ll discuss the differences between lunar and solar eclipses, where and when they happen, and how to safely observe them! We’ll learn about orbits within the Sun-Earth-Moon system, and how often they will occur, as well as shadows (umbra and penumbra).We’ll even get to see the shadow of the Moon as seen from the International Space Station!
