Franklin Tomorrow’s FrankTalks on Monday, Aug.14, will help you get ready for a total eclipse of the sun. Get your questions answered about how to safely view the eclipse and pick up some glasses for viewing.
Join Rocky Alvey, director of Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory, and observatory astronomer, Billy Teets, for a fascinating program about The Mighty Sky and specifically about the 2017 Solar Eclipse, which will come right through Middle Tennessee on Aug. 21 in the middle of the day.
FrankTalks will begin at 9 a.m. at the Westhaven Resident’s Club with a 30-minute coffee social, followed by the program at 9:30 a.m.
FrankTalks is free and the public is invited. Franklin Tomorrow partnered with Vanderbilt University’s Office of Neighborhood, Government and Community Relations to expand the frequency of FrankTalks in 2016 to a monthly program. It is held at various locations across the city, but always on the second Monday of the month.
