Solar Viewing Event 9-24-16

September 24, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Ever seen sunspots?  Know what a sunspot is?  Now’s your chance to find out!  The club will hold its annual Solar Viewing event during White Memorial’s Family Nature Day.

The Sun is a restless, seething cauldron of activity – hot gases roiling the visible surface, prominences where material is being lifted into space, intense magnetic fields.  We’ll bring white-light telescopes allowing safe viewing of sunspots, and Hydrogen-alpha scopes, which show flares and prominences.

Note: if the sky is cloudy the event will not take place.
