The last eclipse happened last fall. NASA Solar System Ambassador Isaac Osores discusses what happened during that eclipse during a presentation at the library on Wednesday, March 27 at 7:00 pm. Using photos taken from San Antonio during the October 14, 2023 eclipse, he will explain what an annual solar eclipse is, as well as how the upcoming April 8 eclipse is different. He will also discuss upcoming celestial events to look out for in the coming weeks.

Osores is an East Brunswick resident who enjoys amateur astronomy and 3D printing. He is also a NASA Solar System Ambassador, committed to communicating the science and excitement of NASA's space exploration missions and discoveries with the people in his community.

This program will explain how solar eclipses work, and a look into activities taking place in East Brunswick Public Schools science classrooms even if you are an adult and do not have a child in the school system.
