The Memphis Astronomical Society presents
The Great American Eclipse
Aug. 21, 2017
The M.A.S. has received many requests to have representatives to be available at eclipse events here in Memphis. Unfortunately, most of us are going to the path of Totality.
If you are planning an eclipse event here in Memphis, you are invited to come to this meeting to learn about things you may want to share with others before and during the eclipse.
This will be a "teach-the-teacher" opportunity.
What can you expect to see from Memphis
Answers to questions you and others may have during the eclipse
How to observe the eclipse safely
Classroom teaching activities
How to take pictures and video of the eclipse
Information about citizen science opportunities
Information about the Eclipse Megamovie project
Information about the M.A.S. plans to travel to the path of Totality

About the M.A.S.
The Memphis Astronomical Society, or M.A.S., is a public service organization which promotes understanding of the science of astronomy through free public lectures and demonstrations. Members are seldom professional astronomers. We work in many different occupations, some in the sciences, but most in other fields. We are amateurs in the basic sense of the word: we study astronomy because we love it. We seek to learn more about it through reading, conversation with other astronomers, professional as well as amateur, and especially through direct observation of celestial objects.
