“As we experience an eclipse first-hand this summer, explore how humans have interpreted eclipses from our beginnings on the African savannas to modern times. We will examine some of the great myths and superstitions about eclipses immortalized in our earliest art and writings and then delve into the lives of the great scientists who helped humanity realize the actual science behind solar and lunar eclipses.”

The Montavilla Neighborhood Association board has changed the general meeting time to the first Sunday of the month. Several key members have resigned from the board, so now could be a good time to get involved.

The meeting’s agenda is here.
