The last and future solar eclipses

Robert returns to Bowen Rotary to report on what happened during the spectacular total eclipse of the sun on August 21, 2017.

He is now planning for a future eclipse, and he will share his thoughts about how to plan to observe a solar eclipse. Robert has traveled to observe 7 solar eclipses, and promises that these are the greatest shows in our solar system.

At this talk, he revealed his prediction for the best location to observe an upcoming eclipse.
