This Saturday we have two NOVAC events scheduled at Crockett. From 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM we’ll be conducting solar public observing. And from dusk to 11:00 PM we’ll have our standard public night. The daytime solar observing makes this one of our special Crockett events. Both are weather permitting. And the hope at this time of year is that the unpredictable weather may cooperate for at least one, if not both events.
For the daytime solar observing bring any solar capable scope (e.g., white light, H-Alpha, Calcium) or indirect methods. Safety first! And don’t forget to dress appropriately – hat, sunscreen, plenty to drink, etc.
Please let me know which event you plan to attend, even you just want to help and don’t have solar astro-equipment.
Please read the C.M. Crockett Page for park details.
