ScienceSouth, Dooley Planetarium hosting solar observation event
ScienceSouth and Dooley Planetarium are hosting a Solar Observing event at ScienceSouth on Jan. 30 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. as part of NASA Saturdays in the Pee Dee. Participants will learn how to safely view the sun, our nearest star. Depending on weather conditions, filters will allow visitors to view sunspots and solar ejections.
The observing event is free and drop-ins are welcome. If weather is bad, the event will provide alternative activities indoors. ScienceSouth is located at 1511 Freedom Boulevard in the Freedom Florence Complex in the big white dome in the rear of the property. Parking is available near the facility. Visitors are welcome starting at 1 p.m.
