MCC to Offer Class on Total Solar Eclipse Viewing

[Monday, July 31, 2017]
     

For the first time in almost 30 years, a total solar eclipse will be visible in the U.S. Learn how you can enjoy the partial or total eclipse with "A Solar Eclipse is Coming!" class offered by McHenry County College's Continuing Education Department from 1-2:20 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 8 in the Luecht Conference Center.

The total solar eclipse will be visible from the continental United States in a 71-mile wide path stretching from Oregon to South Carolina. From the Chicago area, about 85 percent of the sun will be covered by the moon. Michelle Nichols, a longtime staff member at the Adler Planetarium, will discuss the upcoming solar eclipse that takes place on Aug. 21 and share her knowledge of eclipses and how people can view the eclipse. She will also provide information on the next solar eclipse that will happen in 2024.

Cost is $15 per person. Use course code: NRE S56 001 when registering.

The college is located at 8900 U.S. Hwy. 14 in Crystal Lake.
