Sunburst - In pursuit of the Great American Eclipse

08. September 2017

The latest Sunburst by Dr. David Renné, President, International Solar Energy Society.

Early on August 20 I loaded up my car with camping supplies, and my colleague Roger Taylor, with whom I worked for many years at the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and I headed north to the small town of Alliance, Nebraska to experience the Great American Eclipse. A total solar eclipse of the sun is an event no one should miss, and on this day millions of Americans, along with visitors from many countries around the world, descended on cities and towns along the narrow 110-km-wide path of totality to experience this grand event. We arrived in Alliance later that day, set up a small tent on a farmer’s field, and prepared for this major natural phenomenon occurring on the next day. Read the Sunburst blog here.
