The big solar eclipse is less than a month away – August 21 is the exact day.

It’s the first total sun eclipse to take place in the US in almost 100 years. And curiosity seekers are traveling from all over the country – and the world – to witness this unique event. Joining guest host Nick Roman to talk about the eclipse – and his own impending trip – is science writer and eclipse expert John Dvorak.

Guest:

John Dvorak, science writer and and author of recently released book “Mask of the Sun: The Science, History and Forgotten Lore of Eclipses” (Pegasus Books, 2017)
