A Beautiful Afternoon For Some Safe Solar Viewing

The downtown Safe Solar viewing event was a wonderful success.  Nearly 100 people came by on their way to the County Fair and took in a filtered,  telescopic view of the sun with its one sunspot and numerous individuals tried on the safe solar viewing glasses which allow direct visualization of the sun.   Many resources were given away and  the event was something that we will definitely plan on doing again.  Follow our events on the NASA Night Sky Network calendar on the bottom of this blog's homepage.


  1. That's awesome that you were out publicly solar observing, but disappointing that there was only one sunspot. As active as the Sun's been this summer, you were definitely out on the wrong day. Better luck next time!

  2. Funny, I was discussing this thing with my older sister the other day, now I’ll have one particular much more argument in my hand when it’ll appear to confrontation when once more. Wedding sarees

  3. Who do I have to pay in slips of platinum strips to join,...according to the rules of acquisition
