Solar Viewing

July 29 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Weather permitting on selected Saturdays, HRPO staff shows the Sun in three manners projected onto a white surface, directly via safely-filtered optical light and directly with a hydrogen-alpha telescope. With these techniques, visitors are able to see any sizable sunspots or flares occurring. Don’t miss the highest level of solar activity for the next 10-20 years. Protective clothing and sun-screen recommended.
