What are Sunspots and Why do We Care?
10 Jul 2017
4:30 pm-6:30 pm Located at: Camp Verde Community Library
Monday, July 10 starting at 4:30p join Astronomers of the Verde Valley on the Library balcony to view the activity on the sunâ€™s surface. Then take a seat in the Terracotta Room for a presentation from Dr. Jeffrey Hall, Director of Lowell Observatory
The Astronomers of the Verde Valley are well-known in Camp Verde for their star-gazing and dark sky programs, but what about looking at the sun? Did you know that they also have special sun-viewing telescopes that allow people to see activity happening on the sunâ€™s surface? Come and look for yourself on Monday, July 10 at 4:30p. Then, cool off inside the library and give your attention to Dr. Hall as he makes a connection between solar activity and our planetâ€™s climate.
Dr. Jeffrey Hall has served as Director of Lowell Observatory since June 2010. He is part of the team working on Lowellâ€™s Solar Stellar Spectrograph project, a long-term project monitoring solar and stellar activity cycles. The project aims to lend an astronomical perspective to solar influences on terrestrial climate.
This program is part of the Libraryâ€™s Discover NASA exhibition. Discover NASA: From Our Town to Outer Space, a traveling exhibit for libraries, is part of the STAR Library Education Network (STAR_Net) led by the National Center for Interactive Learning at the Space Science Institute. Discover NASA is supported through a grant from NASA.
