ASU at Lake Havasu presents “Eclipses and Transits” by Dr. Doyle Wilson, a presentation of the spring Wednesday lecture series. The program will take place Wednesday, Jan. 17, with refreshments served from 4:45 to 5 p.m. followed by the lecture from 5 to 6 p.m.
In 2017, the solar eclipse captivated the attention of millions of people in the United States and was the first to cross the entire U.S. in almost 100 years. “Eclipses and Transits” will explore different types of eclipses, why and where they occur, and explain the differences between solar eclipses and transits. Photos from the 2017 eclipse and others, illustrations and a demonstration will also be featured.
Dr. Wilson is Lake Havasu City’s Water Resources Coordinator and has been teaching part time at ASU since 2013. Dr. Wilson came to Lake Havasu City in 1999 to teach physical sciences at Mohave Community College, including chemistry, geology, astronomy, environmental science, and meteorology. Current research includes mapping the bottom of Lake Havasu.
The “Eclipses and Transits” presentation will be given at Santiago Hall 109 at ASU Lake Havasu’s campus. For more information, visit https://havasu.asu.edu/home.
