The mission of the Yachats Academy of Arts & Sciences is to provide educational and entertainment opportunities for people on the central Oregon coast. Sponsored by the Friends of the Yachats Commons, we encourage the residents of the village of Yachats, Oregon to work with Academy board members to organize those events that they judge to be most enjoyable.
Karen Heere, retired astronomer, NASA contractor and university professor will walk us through topics such as: What causes an eclipse? When and where to watch? What we will see? Plus eye safety and a history of eclipse watching.
