Eclipses: A Weird History
August 9, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
***Eclipses: A Weird History***
Wednesday, August 9
4:30-5:30 pm, Wakelin Room, Wellesley Free Library
Did you know that Columbus tricked the Arawak Indians into feeding him and his crew for
almost four months with a lunar eclipse? That astronomers proved Einstein’s theory of relativity using a solar eclipse? That an eclipse once stopped a war? Meg Thacher from Smith College will discuss how to view an eclipse safely and all the cool phenomena you can see during an eclipse.
There will be an eclipse-related craft at the end of the program. This event is open to families with children of all ages but is best for children ages 8 and up.
