Solar Viewing

  • Highland Road Park Observatory 13800 Highland Road Baton Rouge, LA, 70810 United States

Weather permitting, HRPO staff shows the Sun in three manners - projected onto a white surface, directly via safely-filtered optical light and directly with a hydrogen-alpha telescope.  With these techniques, visitors are able to see any sizable sunspots or flares occurring.  Don't miss the highest level of solar activity for the next 10-20 years.  Protective clothing and sunscreen recommended.
