Solar Saturday


11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum

Bob Yoesle from Friends of the Goldendale Observatory will present a solar viewing free to the public Saturday, June 3 from 11 am to 4 pm at Columbia Gorge Discovery Center, weather and clouds permitting.

Using special safely-filtered telescopes you can get an unbelievable view of the sun. (Never look directly at the sun – especially using a telescope – without approved filtration.) Our star is a cauldron of incredibly hot gases, sunspots as big as Earth, and loops of gas called filaments and prominences. Bob Yoesle will gladly explain what you are looking at, and the fascinating physics which underlies these incredible features on our dynamic sun. This event will be held, weather permitting (sorry, we can’t control clouds) from 11 am to 4 pm. This event is FREE to the public and will be held outside the museum. Museum admission still applies for visitors who wish to see the exhibits.
