Has the Earth a Ring Around It?

It's an open Wednesday in the library and there are seven women working on projects here. Two on a movie, two on a local history project, one on a book, one on an art project, and one just browsing. We're especially glad to have received a visit today from Sarah Lewison, who made some terrific donations. She gifted us with a copy of the small book, "Has the Earth a Ring Around It?" written by the amateur astronomer Frank Back in 1955 documenting his work to photograph spectrographs of the sky during a complete eclipse, to understand eclipse coronas. --MSP
