Total Solar Eclipse: Live From Micronesia

Reuben H. Fleet Science Center says
The Exploratorium in San Francisco is collaborating with NASA and the National Science Foundation to produce a live broadcast of the total solar eclipse from the Federated States of Micronesia on March 8, 2016. Join us at the Fleet to see the broadcast in the Hiekoff Giant Dome Theater with guest commentary and Q&A from our resident astronomer, Dr. Lisa Wil.

The fully eclipsed sun will be visible from only a few Pacific islands, but the live broadcast will make this amazing phenomenon available to hundreds of countries and millions of people around the world.

The one-hour program includes information about the eclipse and safe viewing techniques, and explores the Micronesian island they will be broadcasting from. It will feature stunning live eclipse imagery from four telescopes (1/4 disk and full-disk in white light and with H-Alpha filters). The program will also explore the science of the sun, using amazing, high-definition images and video from NASA satellites such as the SDO and STEREO missions. It will highlight NASA’s new MMS mission, a multi-satellite endeavor to measure the magnetosphere that connects the sun and Earth.
