    2024 Solar Eclipse Wrap Up
    (1 of 2)

    The 2024 Solar eclipse was a great success here in Vermont.  The high thin clouds we had did little to dampen the show or our experience of it.  Considering the number of people who witnessed and imaged the event we are splitting this between 2 consecutive meetings.

    Members will share their stories as well as some of their images of the event.  Some members observed interesting behavior of animals as the sky darkened.  An unexpected and not so pleasant consequence experienced by members in several places involved mosquitos!  You may hear about several of these experiences.

    Following the main presentation, our recurring monthly presentations will include Constellation of the Month  by Terri Zittritsch
