The Great American Eclipse 2024 In-Person

January 24th, 1925 was the last time Rochester, NY experienced totality during a solar eclipse. April 8th, 2024 will be the first time Rochester is in the path of totality in 99 years. Join Jim Porter, NASA Ambassador, to discuss what solar eclipses are and how to view one safely. Registration is required. Jim Porter worked for over two decades as an aerospace engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA, and Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.
