G

great and timely course!

The Course was great, except for two things. one it was too short :-), and two, the peer graded projects were confusing.

If you are interested in viewing the eclipse you need this class. It has excellent, very concise information about the eclipse and the sun. NOTE: Weeks 2 - 4 are about the sun. Weeks 1 and 5 concern the eclipse.
