Members of several local astronomical organizations will be on hand to celebrate the Summer Solstice. There will be food vendors on hand. Representatives will also share information about the sun, our nearest star in the Solar System. Amateur astronomers will provide their own optical equipment to safely view the sun including hydrogen, alpha, calcium and white light views.

SUNday is a STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Math) event to enhance the publicís understanding of our nearest Star, The Sun. The event is geared not only to spark childrenís interest in science but also to adults and parents so that they can support and encourage the STEM program with their own children who might be inspired to a greater interest in science, perhaps even deciding on a science-related career.
