Solar Observing

At Minocqua Winter Park Chalet on June 25, 2022



Event Details

Solar Observing with Specialized Telescopes 1-3 PM Minocqua Winter Park, Saturday, June 25th  with a backup on Sunday June 26th, 1-3 PM


Join the Northwoods Explorers for an afternoon of observing the Sun. We will use specialized telescopes that only view in the Hydrogen-alpha wavelength to reveal in great detail the Sun's Chromosphere. If we get lucky, we may see Prominences that are much larger than planet Earth shooting out into space from the edge of the Sun, and if there are any sunspots, we can try to look down the middle of it! 


There will be a hands-on presentation on how the sun works and how its weather affects planet Earth.
