Spring Equinox Sunset – 2010

PostHeaderIcon Spring Equinox Sunset – 2010

  • When: Saturday, March 20, 2010 at 7:22pm (so come at 6:50pm)
  • Where: Solstice Park (or, if you’re not in Seattle, wherever you have a view of the western horizon!)
  • Who: Everyone welcome. as usual.
  • This event is my part of NASA’s Solar System Ambassadors program, so if you have questions about NASA missions, bring them and I’ll do my best or direct you to somewhere that can answer!

Come watch the spring equinox sunset Solstice Park in West Seattle on Saturday. We’ll see if the sunset lines up with the placed marker. I’ll be there even if it is cloudy because sometimes the Sun peeks through just as it begins to set, but if it is driving rain or sleet I’m staying home with a hot cup of tea.
