We were fortunate to have Edward Herrick-Gleason, Director of University of Maine‚Äôs Southworth Planetarium speak before a crowded Magic Lantern on Thursday Evening.   While his talk focused on the upcoming eclipse, he spent time explaining not only the mechanics of the eclipse, but also the power of the sun and our small part in the Solar System.  
As for the Eclipse, we in the greater Bridgton Area while we will not see a total eclipse, we will enjoy a 98% coverage of the sun and the resulting darkening of the sky.  It should be spectacular.
