Professor Mark Littmann to present “Totality: The Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017” Friday, April 7

 

Mark Littmann, professor and the Hill Chair of Excellence in Science Writing in the School of Journalism and Electronic Media, will present “Totality: The Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017” Friday, April 7.

On August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the Sun will trace a narrow path across the United States, passing very close to Knoxville. Only one in 100,000 people has seen a total solar eclipse.  It has been 38 years since a total eclipse has visited the mainland of America. Through stories and photographs, Professor Littmann will explore how to observe a total eclipse of the Sun, the most amazing of all celestial sights.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, April 7 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Rooms C-D.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

Additionally, this year, we have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. Please email Amanda Womac for more details.
