Sidewalk Solar Party at Hayner Library Downtown

The SunRemember when you were told not to look directly into the sun? Well, now you can!

With the generous help and time of Eddie Agha, Staff Astronomer at The Nature Institute, The Hayner Public Library District is hosting a Sidewalk Solar Party on October 12, 2015, at the downtown location. Starting at 10:00 a.m., participants will be able to view the sun through a special solar telescope made to view the sun safely. If the weather cooperates, everyone should be able to view the sun and its many wonders, including solar prominences and dark spots. Let Eddie guide you through the special aspects of our great yellow dwarf star, the sun.

As a bonus, an attendance giveaway of solar glasses, one per family, will be handed out. Bring the whole family to see the sun as you have never seen it before! Registration is required at 1-800-613-3163, since space is limited.
