Solar Star Party

sunspots_2000_09_24

The skies are clear enough, so come on ’round! We’ll have 4 ‘scopes out.

What: Solar Observing
Where: Building 200 Cafeteria Patio
When: Tuesday, Oct. 16, 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. Event will be canceled if the sky isn’t clear enough.

Open to anyone on campus who is interested.

Check here on Oct 16, 11 am, for a weather update.
