The event spans two days,
and begins with lodging the night before the eclipse. That evening
a special presentation will be given on "Solar Eclipses and
their Role in the Advancement of Science" by one of your hosts,
Sandra Holder, who holds a Master's Degree in Applied Physics. Special
souvenir eclipse glasses will be distributed, along with safety
and informational handouts.
The morning of the eclipse will begin with a fresh country breakfast,
cooked to order and served between 7:30 and 10:30 am. Guests will
then have plenty of time before the eclipse begins at 11:46 am to
get settled outside on one of several porches and lawns which have
a clear view of the sun's path through the sky. As the eclipse nears
totality, complimentary champagne will be served, along with other
refreshments and light snacks. These will be available throughout
the remainder of the eclipse which will last until 2;41 pm. A live
NASA feed will be streaming in several common areas of the hotel.
That evening your other host, Scott Holder, who holds degrees in
History and Geography, will give a presentation on "Eclipses
in Ancient History". After seeing an eclipse first-hand, Scott
will share with you the impact witnessing such an event has had
throughout human history.
