Solar observation program on tap at library
POLSON — In preparation for the afternoon solar observation program at North Lake County Public Library at 10:30 a.m., our youth services librarian will teach about the sun and other stars: what they’re made of, how they behave and what they do for us here on earth. Crafts and activities suitable for school-aged kids will provide participants with hands-on knowledge. From 2-4:30 p.m., Mark Paulson from Kalispell’s Big Sky Astronomy Club will lead us in a solar observation. This program will begin with some direct observation at 2 p.m., courtesy of Mark’s specialized solar observation equipment, followed by a presentation at 3:30 p.m. that will be geared more toward adults and school-aged children with a hunger for a more advanced understanding of solar phenomena.
