On 20 August the SCC Observatory will be open to the public from 4 PM with solar scopes set up to view solar flares and sunspots until the sun goes down and then the main observatory telescope and member scopes set up after sunset for viewing the night skies. We will be handing out our prize for the Deep Sky Poster contest at this event at 7 PM. The posters submitted by children will be displayed for the visitors to view. The Rotary Club will have their concession stand there with refreshments with all proceeds going to the Observatory.
This event replaces our Astronomy in the Park event that we did for so many years.
UPDATE 20 August, 8 AM: Everything looking good for today’s event. Should be clear skies tonight for viewing.
