Solar Astronomy

Sunday, December 2, 2018

1:00 p.m.2:30 p.m.

Solar astronomy is the scientific study of the celestial star we refer to as the sun. The sun is responsible for Earth’s climate, weather, and sea surface changes.

With specially-filtered telescopes, you can observe the sun safely without hurting your eyes. There's more to the sun than just a yellow ball. See for yourself what the sun's surface and atmosphere look like—93 million miles away.
