Welsch, Moore receive local coverage on the solar eclipse
UW-Green Bay Assistant Prof. Brian Welsch led “Oh, the Things You’ll See! A 30-minute Discussion of the Upcoming Eclipse,” Friday, Aug. 11 in the Christie Theatre. A total solar eclipse will be observable around midday Monday, August 21 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. Welsch (Physics) discussed 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!). Welsch and University photographer Dan Moore (also a National Parks photographer who will be recording the eclipse from the Grand Tetons) were interviewed by Fox 11.
