August 21, 2017 will bring a total solar eclipse across many parts of the US.  Here in Wisconsin, we'll only see a partial eclipse, but through the eyes of NASA, we can get an up-close look at what happens to the sun when the moon gets in its way!  Come join us to get the scoop on the sun and its many spotty moods and flare-ups, and learn some tips on how to safely watch this summer's sunny spectacle!
