SOLAR 101 - WHAT CAN I SEE ON THE SUN TODAY?
It’s all about LIGHT! Safely observe the Sun with special solar glasses, a hydrogen-alpha telescope, and a spectroscope. Talk with our solar expert. This multigenerational program is presented by Timmy Telescope Solar Astronomy Outreach (http://timmytelescope.com/). The workshop facilitators are here for the Philadelphia Science Festival and have a personal connection to the area to bring this experience to us!
Browse the current information boards describing the sun and the electromagnetic spectrum. Kids will receive UV Light detectors and make their own sun prints and dials. Best for kids ages 8 and up, but we'll have a few other activities for younger siblings to enjoy.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Donations welcome, but not required.
Weather permitting, if the forecast calls for rain, there are indoor activities planned.
