CANCELLED June 23 Solar SUNday!
June 23 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Solar SUNday CANCELLED today 6/23/2019! Clouds and haze will prevent us from seeing much if any detail on the Sun. Check back with us next Sunday though, and enjoy this otherwise beautiful day!
Join us for our weekly Solar SUN-day star parties. We meet every Sunday afternoon in Alton Baker Park from noon to 2:00 and view the Sun through safely filtered solar telescopes. We can see sunspots when there are any (an increasingly rare phenomenon as we approach solar minimum), and there will likely be some prominences standing out from the edges. We’ll also have a collection of sundials on display, so you can learn how to tell time the old-fashioned way. We meet next to the scale model Sun to the west of the duck pond. Come join us for an interesting and fun afternoon in the Sun! We’ll be doing this every Sunday throughout the year, weather permitting, with occasional breaks when we can’t field any telescopes on a particular Sunday. Check our website for last-minute details.
