Gerald was a post-doctoral researcher at Imperial College in London and then was on the faculty at Ohio State University for 35 years. Gerald has been to five total solar eclipses, four of which had clear weather.  As a student, he worked two summers at a solar observatory, so the sun has always had a special fascination for him.  Gerald will describe a bit of how the sun works, and about what we should watch for at a total eclipse of the sun.

Food and Concessions will be on site and available for purchase during the event.
