Eugene Astronomical Society SUN-days
January 6 @ 12:00 pm - March 31 @ 2:00 pm
If the sky is clear on Sundays, join us for our weekly solar SUN-day from Noon to 2:00 in Alton Baker Park for a look at the Sun! Solar SUN-days are your chance to have a look at the Sun with special telescopes and filters that allow safe viewing of our nearest star. We plan to do this every Sunday for as long as the weather holds. Come see solar prominences, filaments, sunspots, spicules, faculae, and various other difficult to pronounce but beautiful features visible in our scopes. Some days the Sun is quiet and there’s not much to see, but other days it can be quite dramatic. Drop by on SUN-days and see what’s happening up there.
We’ll gather near the scale model Sun to the south of the duck pond in Alton Baker Park, starting at noon. Weather permitting, of course. We can’t show you the Sun when it’s cloudy!
One of our club members is also experimenting with sundials. Come see how a sundial works, and how they can be made accurate enough to tell time to the minute. Take home a miniature sundial of your own!
