April 2024: Part 1- Solar Eclipse

Due to the exciting Great American Eclipse on April 8, 2024, there will be  TWO editions of the Skies Above P.G. County! Part 1 provides a little information about the eclipse as viewed from P.G. County. We will not be experiencing totality; that is reserved to a narrow band across parts of Texas through parts of New York State (map shown in the video). However, Prince George's Coutny will experience about 87% of the Sun covered, which will be amazing, ONLY IF viewed SAFELY! With this in mind, the video provides information about how to SAFELY view this eclipse, and when to do so. For Part 2, I "Planetarium Patty" will  share her eclipse experience from Dallas,Texas.
