Eclipse 2017 was truly great!


We look forward to eventually hearing many many stories from so many places in Tennessee.
We'll be wrapping this up soon, and moving to a site to highlight astronomy all over the state.
If you have safe solar glasses left over and don't want to save/use them yourself, you can donate to Astronomers Without Borders for use elsewhere in the world!
The resources gathered for the eclipse are wonderful to use anytime to talk about the Sun. Hopefully we'll all continue to do more solar outreach. By the next US eclipse the Sun will be on the active side of the sunspot cycle, putting on a show.
