Sip, Sketch, And Gaze At The Sun (Safely)
On May 12, join Science Friday and Adler Planetarium to look through a telescope at the Sun together, through the power of the Internet. Get inspired by what you see and make an artwork as we look up!
No telescope? No problem! Join Science Friday and the Adler Planetarium for Astro Artists Club. We’ll be pointing our digital ‘scope at the Sun to celebrate the Adler’s 90th anniversary. It’s a happy hour event for all ages!
Join us to learn how all kinds of scientists look at and study our Sun. You’ll see some amazing historical pieces from the Adler’s collection and create an original artwork with us. Bring a sketchbook, notepad, block of clay, or anything else so you can create that artwork inspired by what we see through the telescope, and make sure to share using the hashtag #LookUp!
You can register with us to receive updates about the event, including a recipe for our Drink of the Day (with both kid-friendly and adult ingredients!), a sneak peek into the Adler Planetarium’s object collection, and more!
