DDO Astronomy Speakers Night: How Ancients Predicted Eclipses with Ron Macnaughton (ONLINE)

Jun 5 Astronomy Speakers Night
Saturday, June 5, 2021 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Join us, from the comfort of your home! Explore breaking news from space and current research into what lies beyond our home planet! This speaker night will explain why eclipses happen, accurate patterns observed especially by Babylonians, the mathematical model by the Greeks for the motion of bodies around the Earth, and later developments by Kepler, Newton and others which now allow the location of total solar eclipses to be established with great accuracy. We’ll also take a virtual tour of the DDO, and have opportunities to ask them questions. Only one registration per household is required. Deadline to register for this program is Friday June 4, 2021 at 3:00pm. Prior to the start of the program you will be emailed information on the virtual program links and any specific information relating to your program.
