LVHS Astronomy Club help prep community for upcoming eclipse
Coverage of the August 2017 solar eclipse is brought to you by Shoshone Rose Casino and Hotel.
There’s a big event coming up later this summer in the Wind River Country, and the Lander Valley High School Astronomy Club has planned a public presentation this Friday all about eclipses.
The May 26th event will start at 6 p.m. in the LVHS auditorium.
According to club sponsor Joe Meyer, “club members will present about solar eclipses, cultural perspectives, and online eclipse resources. There will be a live demonstration using eclipse models, and weather permitting, club members will host a telescope observation on the football field later in the evening at about 9:15 pm.”
Any county resident interested in learning more is encouraged to attend this free event. The path of a total eclipse of the sun will pass over the Wind River Basin on August 21st.
