Guerneville Night Market - May 12th, 2023

Our very first chapter event was at the Guerneville Night Market. We had a great time showing passers-by the sun, through our specialized solar telescope. We were able to see several sunspots, and the texture of the sun’s surface.

Our take-home package was a make-it-yourself flip book, animating images of a solar flare from November 2000.

Our art project was a Sun Facts fan, which you can download and print from here.

We will be back for the next night market on the bridge when it is scheduled. Stay tuned!
