What to Expect When It’s Eclipsing: The Shape and Structure of the Sun’s Corona

Andy Layden, Chair and Professor
BGSU Department of Physics and Astronomy

The Sun’s faint, opalescent outer atmosphere, called the corona, becomes visible during a total solar eclipse. The shape and structure of the corona can vary significantly from one total eclipse to the next. We will discuss what to expect at the April 8 eclipse, along with what causes these changes, the coronal structures themselves, and how spacecraft monitor and study the corona.

6:30-7:15 Planetarium Show
7:30-8:30 Public Lecture

The lecture portion of this event will also be livestreamed. Join the Eclipse Speakers Series livestream here.
