We’re excited to welcome Dr. Alain J. Brizard, PhD in Astrophysical Sciences, 1990, Princeton University, on April 7, the eve of the highly anticipated 2024 total solar eclipse. He’ll discuss a bit about the science and history behind what our guests will witness the following afternoon, as Burlington falls on the eclipse’s path of totality.
