Our SFPL Hosts an Event on August 6th for the Great Eclipse of August 21, 2017 – FREE PAIR OF VIEWING GLASSES

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

 

The San Francisco Public Library has got you covered with this whole partial eclipse thing:

“The Sky Event of the Decade: August’s Eclipse of the Sun – Receive free safe viewing glasses and tips for observing this once-in-a-lifetime event

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — San Francisco Public Library is pleased to bring Astronomer Andrew Fraknoi to the Main Library for a talk titled “August’s ‘All-American’ Eclipse of the Sun and How to View it Safely.”

On Aug. 21, there will be an eclipse of the sun visible throughout North America.  People in a narrow path from Oregon to South Carolina will see a spectacular total eclipse, with the moon briefly covering the sun, and day turning into night.  Everyone else, including those in the Bay Area, will see a partial eclipse, where the moon covers a good part of the sun.

On Sunday, Aug. 6, Astronomer Andrew Fraknoi will give a non-technical, family-oriented talk on getting ready for the “All-American” eclipse of the sun. Fraknoi will describe how eclipses work, why they are one of nature’s most spectacular sights, exactly when and where the eclipse of 2017 will be visible, and how to observe the eclipse and the sun safely.

Everyone attending the event will receive a free pair of safe viewing glasses for observing the sun.Copies of Professor Fraknoi’s new children’s book on eclipses, When the Sun Goes Dark, will be available for sale and signing after the talk. Like the book, the discussion will be appropriate for children 10 years of age or older, and adults.

Andrew Fraknoi is the chair of the astronomy department at Foothill College. He serves on the 2017 Eclipse Task Force of the American Astronomical Society, training teachers and librarians to act as guides for the public as the August eclipse approaches. He has appeared regularly on local and national radio, explaining astronomical developments in everyday language and was named California Professor of the Year in 2007.  The International Astronomical Union has named Asteroid 4859 Asteroid Fraknoi to honor his contributions to the public understanding of science.

The Sun that is.

The way some of our streets are lined up, sometimes you end up staring right into El Sol, particularly if you’re driving west in October during the Evening Drive on a rare cloudless day

The Sidewalk Owls of the Bay Area – This Tiny Western Screech Owl Lives Just Above Your Heads – A Great Photo

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Another great shot from San Francisco nature photographer David Cruz.

“A pair of little owls (Western Screech Owl) were in a hole in a live oak tree that hangs over a quiet street in the SF Bay Area. Very cool seeing them in a quiet urban situation, cars drove right under the hollow branch at a steady residential pace. Shortly after sunset, one owl stood near the edge for a moment before flying away,  allowing me to photograph it. “

(BTW, those are plum trees you see blooming all over town since January. Yes the Earth is warming, but not so much that you can tell with your five senses…)
