Eclipse News

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. 

For more info contact Lora Gale, BLM Kanab, UT, 435-644-1235, or Arthur Cloutier in Page, AZ,  928-645-9395.
