VANCOUVER – A session on the Aug. 21 total eclipse of the sun will be offered on Friday through the Clark College Community Education program.
The class will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Foster Auditorium on the main campus, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way. The path of the moon’s umbral shadow begins in the northern Pacific and crosses the United States from west to east, with totality cutting across Oregon at Salem.
Vancouver will experience 99 percent totality at about at about 10:19 a.m.
The class will be taught by retired physicist Duane Ray, who also will discuss the annual Perseid meteor shower, which tends to peak right about now.
Cost is $19; register at 360-992-2939 or online at ecd.clark.edu.
