Our Magnetic Sun: Solar Telescope

April 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Astronomer Bob Reichman returns to discuss Our Magnetic Sun. There is no fire on the Sun! All that energy is electromagnetic. We’ll start inside to share fun solar facts, learn about sun spots, the Northern Lights and see 2017 Total Solar Eclipse pics.

After our program, we’ll go outside to set up a specialized, h-alpha solar telescope that will let us safely observe the Sun and provide us views of any sunspots or solar prominences that might be visible. Every child will receive a UV-sensitive bead bracelet that “magically” changes color in sunlight, but not other bright lights.

Registration is recommended for this program.
