This event is for a kids' group. We will be learning how to make a solar projector and a solar viewer to take home. We will demonstrate how an eclipse happens and why it doesn't happen all the time. Weather permiting we will observe the sun through solar telescopes to see if there are any sunspots to look at or solar flares. I will explain the solar activity and how it effects us here on Earth.
