The Greatest Story Ever Told
A DVD lecture
Professor Neil deGrasse Tyson
This lecture synthesizes the greatest discoveries of
physics, astrophysics, chemistry, and biology to present a coherent story of
the birth and evolution of the cosmos. Modern humans are not the first group of
people to speculate about cosmic evolution, but we are the first to use the
tools of science to describe the birth of the cosmos, trace its progress, and
understand our place in it. This lecture brings together all the branches of
science to tell the story of our existence.

May 17 - Full Moon.
The Moon will be directly opposite the Earth from the Sun and will be
fully illuminated as seen from Earth. This phase occurs at 11:09 UTC.
This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full
Flower Moon because this was the time of year when spring flowers
appeared in abundance. This moon has also been known as the Full Corn
Planting Moon and the Milk Moon.
June 1 - New Moon. The Moon will be directly between the Earth and the Sun and will not be visible from Earth. This phase occurs at 21:03 UTC.
June 1 - Partial Solar Eclipse. The partial eclipse will be visible in most parts eastern Asia, Alaska, northern Canada, and Greenland. (NASA Map and Eclipse Information)
June 15 - Total Lunar Eclipse. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. (NASA Map and Eclipse Information)
June 21 - June Solstice.
The June solstice occurs at 17:16 UTC. The North Pole of the earth will
be tilted toward the Sun, which will have reached its northernmost
position in the sky and will be directly over the Tropic of Cancer at
23.44 degrees north latitude. This is the first day of summer (summer
solstice) in the northern hemisphere and the first day of winter (winter
solstice) in the southern hemisphere.
July 1 - New Moon. The Moon will be directly between the Earth and the Sun and will not be visible from Earth. This phase occurs at 08:54 UTC.
