For most of human history, the stars told us where we were in space and time. Have we forgotten how to look up?

Preparing for the Total Solar Eclipse of 2017
On August 21, 2017, the first total eclipse in the U.S. in 26 years will occur along a narrow path from Oregon, across Nebraska and Missouri, all the way to South Carolina. Have you selected a site and made reservations yet? Daryl has. His program this month will explain the conditions of the eclipse, provide advice on how to observe it and recommendations about where to observe. He will also show photos he took during a 1979 total eclipse and discuss some of the history and mythology of eclipses.
BAS will also elect officers during the business meeting.
