In conjunction with the Peabody Museum’s latest interactive exhibit Black Holes: Infinity and Beyond, the Astronomical Society of New Haven held a day long Solar Party on the lawn of the museum.
More than 350 people looked through a variety of telescopes at our nearest star throughout the day. Many questions were answered by club members manning the telescopes about the sun and astronomy in general as they went from telescope to telescope, comparing the views.
And what was everyone looking at? A nice sunspot complex AR1178!
