This daytime astronomy event offers participants an opportunity to examine the star that is closest to Earth: the Sun. Using special solar observing equipment, we'll look at the sun's surface and note features such as prominences and sunspots. We'll also demonstrate a pinhole projector, a homemade device that can be used safely to view the solar eclipse that will occur on August 21, 2017. Remember, never look directly at the sun without appropriate eye protection, and never look at the sun through optical aids such as binoculars or telescopes unless they are specifically designed for solar viewing. The use of inappropriate, inadequate, or damaged equipment can injure your eyes and even cause permanent loss of vision.
