The brightest light in our lives, the sun, doesn’t get enough respect. A program designed to give the sun proper attention ran weekend-long, Friday through Sunday, on the outside deck of the Hilton. The weather was perfect for this program, all weekend long.
This year, the sun seems to be more active than in recent years. Participants received special viewing glasses, to see the sun look like a kaleidoscope. Special telescopes were also set up to see the sun with different filters. The telescope filter that showed the sun as white allowed people to see sunspots in action.
This is a free way to see the sun in action, and it doesn’t take a lot of time; you can even squeeze it in between panels. If you missed it this year, check it out next year. You won’t regret it.
