USC Eclipse Station 6: Solar Telescopes (Melton Memorial Observatory)

August 21 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Ten outdoor Eclipse Stations will be set up across the USC campus on 8/21 and staffed by USC Eclipse Ambassadors from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm. Learn about the eclipse, see the sun through a solar telescope, play some games, and get tips for safe viewing and how to get the most out of the eclipse.

Station 6: Solar Telescopes
Have a close look at the partially eclipsed sun through our solar telescopes, then try your hand at building a simple solar telescope using inexpensive optics, cardboard, and tape. Take instructions home with you so you can buy the parts (<$10) and make one at home.

 

This event will be handing out free eclipse glasses to guests courtesy of the City of Columbia, S.C.! Available on event date and time only.

Located at the Melton Memorial Observatory in Columbia, S.C., hosted by USC Dept. of Physics and Astronomy.
