Saturday October 13th from
1pm to 3pm at the Nature and
Wildlife Discovery Center

How old is the light that comes from the Sun?  
How much fuel is the sun burning per second?  
What would happen if the Sun simply
disappeared?  Have you ever seen a solar flare
or sun spot in a Solar Safe telescope?  Saturday
October 13th from 1pm to 3pm the Southern
Colorado Astronomical Society and Nature and
Wildlife Discovery Center (formerly known as
Nature and Raptor Center of Pueblo) will hold a
Solar Gaze next to the Coyote Grill and everyone
is invited!

Our Sun is a massive nuclear fusion engine,
providing warmth and light, sustaining life on
Earth.  So powerful it creates weather in space.
Join SCAS as we explore our local star with
specialized telescopes built to allow safe and
direct viewing of the Sun.  See the very “surface”
of the sun churn; observe flares, loops, sun
spots and prominences, some several times
larger than the Earth.  SCAS will have
information on hand for visitors to take home with
them from NASA to continue learning and
exploring once the event has ended.  All ages
are welcome to enjoy this amazing
opportunity.     
Saturday October 20th starting at 7pm SCAS will be holding a
Moon and star gaze at Rawlings Public Library. Find us in the
parking lot south of the main building.  This is free to attend
and everyone is welcome.  We'll publish more details as this
event develops.
