Join Professor Daniel Homan virtually as he talks about the upcoming total eclipse on April 8, what to expect, and how to view it safely. He will also speak more broadly the science behind eclipses, why we don’t see one every month, and how astronomers and physicists have used eclipses as unique learning opportunities. We hope you will attend this out-of-this-world event!

About Professor HomanProfessor Dan Homan

Professor Homan came to Denison in 2003 after working as a Jansky Fellow at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, NRAO, in Charlottesville, Va. Prior to his Jansky Fellowship, Dan earned his Master’s and Ph.D. degrees from Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass. Over the last two decades at Denison, Professor Homan has involved many students in his work studying the physics of extragalactic jets emerging from near supermassive black holes in distant active galaxies.
