Summer Solstice Solar Saturday

Saturday Jun 22, 2013

Petroglyph National Monument

4735 Western Trail NW
Albuquerque, NM
US

Join Petroglyph National Monument and The Albuquerque Astronomical Society (TAAS) for another solar observation event marking the transition from one season to another.

For all of human history people around the world have observed the motion of sunrises and sunsets moving from solstice to equinox to solstice to help plan their lives around seasonal change.  Now we can do this same observation but with the addition of safe devices such as solar scopes that allow us to directly and safely view and study the sun in detail never before possible.
