CANCELED Solar Star Party, Mar. 20, Bldg 1 main cafeteria patio

sunspots_2000_09_24Canceled

What: Solar Observing
Where: Building 1 Main Cafeteria Patio
When: Tuesday, March 20, noon to 1:00 pm

Come view the Sun, our very own star, with the APL Astronomy Club. Count sunspots, see faculae and plages and maybe granulation and spicules, and compare the view through different kinds of equipment. Venus and Jupiter will also be visible in regular telescopes.

Open to anyone on campus who is interested.

If it’s too cloudy the event will be canceled, but we’ll try again on April 17, at either the Bldg 17 cafeteria patio, or MP6 cafeteria patio.

10:30 am EDT:  Canceled. The sky is currently socked in, and forecasts agree that will not change.  So, in the hopes of guaranteeing a few hours of noon-time sunshine today, we have canceled this event.

    Although the very active group 1429 will have rotated out of sight around the limb of the Sun, other groups are building up.
