Old Bridge, NJ – July 27, 2017 – A Princeton University researcher and NASA Ambassador will examine the wonder of solar eclipses and hurricanes at the Old Bridge Public Library in August.
On Thurs. Aug. 10th at 7pm, “Exploring the Solar Eclipse” will prepare patrons to view the upcoming Aug. 21st solar eclipse, which will be visible within a specific band across the contiguous US. Presented by NASA Solar System Ambassador Frank O’Brien, the session promises to be an entertaining and engaging presentation that will explore the nature of solar and lunar eclipses. It will also provide information about how participants can protect their eyes to safely view the eclipse, and special eclipse viewing glasses will be given to attendees after the program. This program is best suited for ages 10 to adult.
On Sun. Aug. 13th at 2:30pm, the Library’s monthly InQuire Science program topic will be Understanding Hurricanes. The session will examine how hurricanes form, the different components of a hurricane forecast, and the impacts associated with hurricanes. The interactive talk will be led by Dr. Kieran Bhatia, a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions during the presentation and can expect to leave the event well-prepared to handle the next hurricane.
