Join astronomers from the Dunlap Institute to learn about the geometry of eclipses. Learn about the positions of the earth, sun and moon during different types of eclipses. Then, create your own scale model of the earth-moon-sun system in order to understand the shadows cast during an eclipse. All materials will be provided.
