Looking for resources to teach about the 2017 eclipse?

Based in San Francisco, The Astronomical Society of the Pacific is a more than 100-year old nonprofit that partners with NASA, the American Astronomical Society, the National Science Foundation and others, to advance science literacy through astronomy.  The Society’s web site features an excellent list of resources about the 2017 solar eclipse on its web site, for use by teachers, astronomy educators and all of us who want to know more about the eclipse.

They are also partnering with the NightSky Network – a coalition of amateur astronomers across the country – to provide eclipse education materials and instructions for activities – including a collection of resources for communities in the partial path of the eclipse. There’s even a downloadable postcard about the eclipse that can be customized to your exact location.
