While the main focus of the event is on observing and photographing the nighttime sky, a host of other activities are available during the daylight hours at AHSP; these include birding, caving, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, canoeing, and rock climbing. Most of these are
scheduled activities led by either a TMI staffer or a knowledgeable NOVAC member, and are open to all AHSP participants. There is safe solar observing during the day, when sun spots and solar flares (prominences) are visible. Having the right gear is essential to doing this effectively and safely. Never look at the sun without a proper solar filter! You’ve been warned!
