Solar Gazing – Castle in the Clouds, Moultonborough NH

June 24 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Disobey your mother and look at the sun…through a hydrogen-alpha telescope! Each Monday, members of the NH Astronomical Society will set up their telescopes in the field by Shannon Pond. Feel free to drop by and speak with the astronomers, learn about the sun, and try out their telescopes anytime between 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm.

Solar Gazing requires clear skies. In the event that it is raining or overcast, there will be an opportunity to chat with the astronomers in the Winnipesaukee Room on the second floor of the Carriage House instead.

This is a free program and registration is encouraged but not required.

Marc Stowbridge lives in central New Hampshire and astronomy has been an interest of his ever since childhood when he watched the first satellites crossing the sky. Since joining the New Hampshire Astronomical Society (NHAS) in 1999, he has participated in many sky watches and was Chair of the Outreach Committee for several years. Marc is a NASA/JPL volunteer educator through the Solar System Ambassador program.
