ARIZONA STAR TALES - NOTE: Until further notice, all events have been cancelled and no requests are being accepted at this time due to the pandemic
This month at the South Mountain Environmental Education Center was all about the Sun. The picture above shows how the Sun looks through three different types of filters that we discussed. We also discussed the origin and make up of the Sun and the different types of energies it supplies the Earth. We also described how Sun Block works and showed a video of how it blocks the skin-damaging ultraviolet waves. Afterwards was a nice clear evening for telescope viewing as we observed Saturn, Neptune, the Ring Nebula, Star Clusters, and even the Andromeda Galaxy! Another great evening at SMEEC!
