Live Solar Viewing
Tuesday, July 07, 2020, 11:00am

Join the Department of Astronomy for a live Solar Viewing from McDonald Observatory on Tuesday, July 7 starting at 11:00 am Central time. Host Joe Wheelock will show you live views of the Sun (weather permitting) with specially filtered telescopes located at the Frank N. Bash Visitors Center. He will discuss sunspots, prominences, solar flares and other solar related topics. Plus, he’ll be exploring the Sun using images from the Solar Dynamics Observatory (a NASA telescope in space). If there’s inclement weather, a Q&A session about the Sun will be conducted.

Hope for clear skies!
