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.

Answers to questions you and others may have during the eclipse

About the M.A.S.

The Memphis Astronomical Society is a non-profit, public service organization promoting interest and education in astronomy and related sciences. Founded in 1953

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.
