Statewide Star Party: Solar Viewing

William B. Umstead State Park
William B Umstead State Park Friday, April 21st 12pm-2pm Free event.

Come look closer than you ever have before at Earth’s most important, most impressive star: the Sun. William B. Umstead State Park is hosting a sun viewing party! All ages welcome, after all everyone wants to take a closer look at the sun. Rain or shine, we will have activities that relate to our solar system and the sun in particular. Learn about solar flares and the history of the study of the sun. If conditions are right we will set up our telescope with a solar filter for viewing the sun.
