Sun Spotting

We all know that looking at the sun without proper protection, even just a glimpse, can cause damage to your eyes. However, if you look through a specially filtered telescope you can “spot” some amazing things. The Creation Museum is excited to introduce a special astronomy program: Sun Spotting. Conducted by Dr. Danny Faulkner, our new staff astronomer, you’ll have the opportunity to observe sun spots and solar prominences. Join us as Dr. Faulkner describes the sun and its activity then takes the opportunity to answer your questions.

The cost for each show is $5.95 per person. Museum members and pass-holders receive a 10 percent discount. The presentation will last approximately 45 minutes. This program takes place only if weather permits and tickets cannot be reserved before the day of the program. For more information contact [email protected].

As an added bonus, participants in this program can receive a discount on our regularly scheduled planetarium shows. When you buy a program ticket at the Museum’s front desk you may also purchase a scheduled planetarium show ticket for just $4.00, a savings of $3.95! This offer must be mentioned before the purchase of regularly scheduled planetarium show tickets to receive the discount.
