Join us July 11th 2023 12:00 – 1:30pm for a special #TMNTuesday free webinar to hear about the upcoming Eclipses that pass across Texas in 2023 and 2024.
Texas is uniquely situated with the crossroads of two major astronomical events crisscrossing the state in the coming year – an Annular Solar Eclipse October 14th, 2023 and a Total Solar Eclipse April 8th, 2024. All Texas Master Naturalist volunteers are welcome to learn about these upcoming natural events, how to safely watch them, and other programs our partners at NASA are hosting. Using your learned naturalist skills to study natural life, master naturalists can apply those same skills to this event and engage the public in learning about the natural world’s reaction to eclipses. Join us to also learn about a community science data program trying to understand eclipses and other astronomical events.
The webinar is free and open to the public! Join us at 12:00pm cst for an hour an a half presentation with scientists from NASA and the GLOBE program covering the different eclipse types and how to view them each safely. Learn what role a naturalist has in observing the eclipse and about a community science SoundScapes project being hosted to listen to the change in sounds before, during and after event like this.
