Solar Viewing at the Plant Sale



Are you ready for the “once in a lifetime” total solar eclipse that will occur on Mon, August 21, 2017?  What is it, how/where to safely view it, and a chance to learn more about the sun.  

From 10:00 AM until 1:00 PM on Saturday, April 22 (WEATHER PERMITTING)

John Walker, a member of Barnard-Seyfert Astronomical Society in Nashville and Cumberland Astronomical Society in Gallatin, will have his solar telescope at the plant sale to look at the sun. He will also have pictures & information about the sun and the upcoming solar eclipse.

With the solar telescope, people can safely view the sun and possibly see sunspots, spicules, prominences, and other surface features.

So come out for a close-up look at your sun!
