How often do eclipses occur and where can they be seen?  Fred Espenak has spent more than four decades chasing eclipses around the world. He will share his experiences with us through photos and video. The next total eclipse though the U.S.A. occurs on April 8, 2024. Details of this exciting event will also be presented.
