Solar Eclipse Event Planning for October 14, 2023 - A Review of the Newest Resources for Engaging the Public
Tuesday, September 12, 2023; 2pm - 3pm Eastern / 11am - 12pm Pacific
The 2023 Annular Solar Eclipse (October 14, 2023) is almost here! All of North America will have at least a partial solar eclipse; audiences on the path of annularity (crossing Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and Texas) will see an incredible "ring of fire." Join us for this online workshop to learn about the many new resources available to engage your audiences in this exciting celebration. We will be joined by presenters from a variety of NASA projects who will share their experiences, expertise, and all-new resources available for engaging audiences in 2023. Whether you have been planning since last year for a big event or just looking for a new activity to spark conversations about eclipses, don’t miss out on this chance to learn more about the 2023 resources now available.
Two major solar eclipses are coming to North America; during both events all of North America will have at least a partial solar eclipse!
- Saturday, October 14, 2023: an annular solar eclipse will be experienced in the US from Oregon to Texas
- Monday, April 8, 2024: a total solar eclipse will be seen in the US from Texas to Maine
