There will be several portable telescopes out in the front yard of the college looking at the sun with special filters that will show any regions of high activity, like sun spots, large prominences and possible solar flares. Other telescopes will be used to find the planet Venus in daytime and the Moon and Jupiter in the evening, weather permitting.
