Great American Eclipse map

A brand new show about the upcoming Great American Eclipse on August 21st:  how eclipses happen, about the path of totality, (above) and if you aren’t going there, how to SAFELY observe the partial eclipse here in the Upper Susitna Valley with eclipse shades, or using other indirect methods of viewing the eclipse, using items like a colandar, (above) or a spatula, or the dappled light beneath trees, or the sun’s reflection off water. There will be eclipse viewing gatherings at the schools, and at the Walter Harper Talkeetna Ranger Station. Hear the details of all this, and don’t forget about the Perseid meteor shower at the end of the week!

More audio paragraphs from a previously aired StarDate Susitna (this one from June) about what to expect during the solar eclipse August 21st, whether you’ve made plans to travel to the path of totality, (thousands of miles of traffic jams?, food shortages?) or will be here in the upper Susitna Valley (where we’ll hope for clear skies that morning).

Photo is about what the Aug 21 eclipse will look like from the Upper Susitna Valley, but only through eclipse shades! Eclipse shades still available at KTNA.
