BOOK When the Sun Goes Dark DOC

This illustrated book is a fun way to get young astronomers ready for August 2017, when millions of North Americans will have the rare chance to witness a solar eclipse. The book tells how two curious children and their grandparents re-create eclipses in their living room using a lamp, a tennis ball, two Hula Hoops, and Ping-Pong balls. Later, in the backyard and around the house, the family explores safe ways to view a solar eclipse and ponders phenomena from sunspots to phases of the Moon. Written by the authors of NSTA’s award-winning book Solar Science, When the Sun Goes Dark gives children and adults hands-on techniques for learning the science behind eclipses of the Sun and Moon.

About the Author
Andrew Fraknoi, is an award-winning science educator who is known for his skill in interpreting astronomical discoveries and ideas in everyday language. In 2007, he was selected as Professor of the Year for the state of California by the Carnegie Endowment for Higher Education. For 14 years, Fraknoi served as the executive director of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, an international scientific and educational organization founded in 1889. He was also editor of its popular-level magazine, Mercury, and started its newsletter for teachers, Universe in the Classroom. He founded and directed Project ASTRO, a program that trains and brings professional and amateur astronomers into 4th – 9th grade classrooms (now in 12 regional sites throughout the U.S.). After retiring as executive director, he worked as senior educator for the Society, developing educational materials and leading workshops. Asteroid 4859 has been named Asteroid Fraknoi by the International Astronomical Union to honor his work in sharing the excitement of modern astronomy with students, teachers, and the public. Dennis Schatz is Senior Advisor at Pacific Science Center in Seattle, Washington. He is also Field Editor of a new Journal, Connected Science Learning, which highlights links between in-school and out-of-school learning. The journal is a joint effort of NSTA (National Science Teachers Association) and ASTC (Association of Science-Technology Centers). In addition, he is on the boards of NSTA and BSCS (Biological Sciences Curriculum Studies). A research solar astronomer prior to his career in science education, he worked at the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley, until he moved to Seattle in 1977. At Pacific Science Center he has held a broad range of positions, from Director of the Planetarium to Senior for Education. From August 2010 to February 2011, he was a Visiting Scholar at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia, followed by four years as a Program Director at the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Excellent resource for learning the astronomy of eclipses and phases of the moon By Julia “When the Sun goes Dark” is a the perfect book for this age level to support learning about eclipses and lunar phases. Rather than a presentation of dry facts, extensive astronomy content is developed for the reader through the narration of a character in a story as she learns about astronomy through conversations with her grandparents and younger brother. Not only does the story explain the astronomy of eclipses and phases of the moon, but it does so as the characters engage with several activities that help them learn about these topics. These activities are perfect for use by parents and children in the home or teachers and students in a school classroom. The illustrations helpfully demonstrate both the concepts being communicated and the materials needed to engage with these activities. I could see a teacher using this to guide instruction by reading through a few pages then trying out the activities described in the book. Further, the children in the story bring up some of the common questions and challenges learners often have with these topics allowing the narrative to explain these issues for the reader. Finally, one of the real strengths of this book is how well it helps the reader, again through both the narrative and the illustrations, understand the complex spatial reasoning required to explain these phenomena. Great addition to any young reader's science library! 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Like others we’ve seen over the years for the upper ... By Cary When the Sun Goes Dark is an entirely new kind of science book for kids. Like others we’ve seen over the years for the upper elementary and middle school ages, it’s a beautifully illustrated story that communicates important science ideas—in this case the reasons for moon phases and eclipses of the sun and moon. What makes this one special is that it does much more than teach a few important concepts. First, by illustrating the reasons for moon phases and eclipses, it helps kids correct a common misconception that the crescent moon phase is caused by Earth’s shadow falling on the moon. Second, it goes beyond simple explanations to illustrate, in a clear and logical way, why we don’t see eclipses every month, and why we’re much less likely to see a solar eclipse than a lunar eclipse. And third, the timing of this publication couldn’t be better, since it provides practical and safe ways to observe the first total solar eclipse in decades to be seen across a large swath of the United States —coming up August 21 of this year! 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. More than "oohed and aahed" By Alan Gould This book is the next best thing to an actual live workshop about eclipses. It's a story told by a 12 year old child about wisdom learned from eclipse chasing grandparents. It has how to set up a Sun-Earth-Moon model at home with a tennis ball as model Moon and a lamp as model Sun (with the family dog named Sirius lying under the table where the lamp is). This right off the bat can explain why we see phases of the Moon as well as why eclipses happen and the difference between partial, annular, and total solar eclipses. It can show how the Moon's shadow covers a path only a few dozens of miles wide. It also explains why lunar eclipses happen and why they can be seen much more frequently than total solar eclipses. Grandpa shows how two hula hoops can show why eclipses don't happen every month. Since most children won't be able to go to the path of totality, especially important is how to view partial eclipse stages using special eclipse filter "glasses", pinhole projection, or projecting an image of the Sun onto a white paper on a clipboard from binoculars on a tripod. My one criticism is that reactions of people watching the eclipse is only described as that they "oohed and aahed". In my experience, at the moment of totality, people go completely nuts (or bananas), including me. See all 7 customer reviews...
