California Poppy Festival, AVAC booth & Solar Astronomy, Saturday 4/18 and Sunday 4/19

The AVAC will have a large booth with displays, demonstrations, and handouts, for public education and outreach. We'll have specialized telescopes for solar astronomy and should be able to see Jupiter and Venus during the day as well. The Sun Spotter scope will be set up as well. The festival is open to the public from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm daily.

For club members bringing in equipment, set up time is usually 7:30am on Saturday.

AVAC members, call a Board member to let us know if you want to help out at the booth! If you can't help all day, stop by to give one of the other volunteers a break. There will be a few free entry passes only for members helping at the booth.
