UW-Green Bay’s Welsch to share eclipse expertise in advance of total solar eclipse

Join UW-Green Bay faculty member Brian Welsch for “Oh, the Things You’ll See! A 30-minute Discussion of the Upcoming Eclipse,” from 12:30 to 1 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11 in the Christie Theatre, University Union. On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will be observable around midday along a path spanning the United States. While the path of totality will miss Wisconsin, the sun will be about 80% eclipsed around Green Bay. UW-Green Bay Assistant Prof. Brian Welsch (physics) will discuss the crescent-shaped images of the partially eclipsed sun that will be visible in Northern Wisconsin, safe viewing practices and what those who travel to observe the total eclipse will see. (This includes lots of traffic, so pack extra provisions!) If you can’t make the event at UW-Green Bay, another event will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 13 at Neville Museum.
