Inaugural Solar Viewing Event Coming to CWI

April 25, 2014

The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Physics and Astronomy Department is excited to welcome the public to campus, May 3, for a solar viewing event at the Nampa Campus Academic Building. The event will mark the first opportunity for the public to utilize CWI’s new solar telescope, which was made possible by a mini-grant from the CWI Foundation and the Department of Physical Sciences.  

The solar viewing will take place on the west lawn of the Academic Building at 1 p.m., weather permitting. Come learn about the Sun from CWI Astronomy Instructor, Dr. Irwin Horowitz, and marvel at the views of our home star through this instrument.
