Dr. Mark Fischer of North College Hill, Ohio, is a Professor of Physics at Mount St. Joseph University where he teaches physics, forensics, and astronomy. His research has involved the physics of fungal spore launch mechanisms. His free time is filled with family, music (two bands), and geocaching – which you may know from a previous Oxbow presentation. This time around, Dr. Fischer will tell us about the upcoming total eclipse of the sun, as well as introducing the physics of eclipses, and presenting us with information about historic eclipses and how they were viewed and interpreted.
