Sunspot Spotting

Interpretive

2020 marked the beginning of a new 11 year solar cycle which will see a dramatic increase in the number of sunspots over the next 4-6 years. During this family friendly program, we will learn all about sunspots, their effect on planet earth, and how to safely view them.

Each family or group in attendance will be given the supplies to make their very own DIY sunspot viewer.

We will also use a specially filtered telescope to view sunspots (if any are present and weather conditions are favorable).

Minors aged 16 and younger must have legal guardian present at all times.

Current CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will be observed.

Registration required. For more information call (949) 923-2277 or email nathan.taxel@ocparks.com
