The Bureau of Land Management staff and volunteer
group is planning to set up telescopes to show visitors properly filtered views of the sunspots and the eclipse
on the afternoon of the 23rd. The visitor center and museum will have space for volunteer observers in the parking lot.
Most volunteers are from Page, AZ providing their own scopes for the event. Scopes will be set up 1:00 p.m. -5:00 p.m.
An evening session will also be sponsored for dark
sky viewing of planets, double stars, constellations, globular clusters, and galaxies. After sunset scopes will
be used for these views from 6:00 p.m. till 8:30 p.m.
