Solar Observing at Palatine Library

  • Palatine Library 700 N. North Court, Palatine, IL 60067 Palatine (map)

In the run-up to the 21 August total solar eclipse, people are becoming more and more interested in the nearest star, our sun. Why not stop by the Palatine Library and join the Northwest Suburban Astronomers in viewing the sun as you've never seen it before.  A variety of telescopes equipped for safe solar observing will be on hand to show you sunspots, solar prominences, and the sun's granular appearance.  The event will not be held in case of overcast.
