Annular Eclipse Event at Fremont Peak Sunday May 20

On May 20, Northern California will experience an eclipse of the Sun. This is a 5 minute movie that I authored for FPOA. This is also a reminder that we will have a special solar program that day.

At Fremont Peak the sun will be about 88% covered. According to some measurements the entire partial eclipse should be visible from the observatory.

These are the references cited in the movie:
