Sun Spotting

Back to All Discover Workshops

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 present a special astronomy program: Sun Spotting. Conducted by Dr. Danny Faulkner, our 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 presentation will last approximately 45 minutes, and this program takes place only if weather permits. For more information, contact us via email.
