Spring Break Solar Viewing

Join the Oregon Observatory staff for solar viewing every day during Spring Break from 11m-2pm.  See the sun through our filtered telescopes to get an unbelievable, and safe view, of the Sun (as you have no doubt been told many times, do not look directly at the sun without proper equipment).

See surface details and loops of gas called prominences in our hydrogen-alpha filtered telescopes. Staff will gladly explain what you are looking at, and for.See the sun through our filtered telescopes to get an unbelievable, and safe view, of the Sun (as you have no doubt been told many times, do not look directly at the sun without proper equipment).
