Author, astronomer, artist and professor Tyler Nordgren will discuss how different cultures interpret eclipses through accounts from a variety of ancient and modern scientists at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 29, at the Museum of Flight.

The program is based on his Nordgren’s new book, “Sun Moon Earth — The History of Solar Eclipses from Omens of Doom to Einstein and Exoplanets.” Nordgen will host a book signing after the presentation. The book signing is free, and the program is free with admission to the museum, 9404 E. Marginal Way S., Tukwila.

The program is an introduction to next month’s rare solar eclipse, which is the first total eclipse of the sun that will be visible across the United States in almost forty years.
