Program Description


Learn about the life cycle of the Sun on Kitt Peak!  This three hour program discusses how the Sun was formed, reactions within the Sun and how the Sun will die.  

In addition, we will look at our fellow inhabitants of the solar system and how the Sun affects those planets.

This program is held during the day at the McMath - Pierce Solar Telescope on Kitt Peak.  The weather on Kitt Peak is approximately 10 - 20 degrees cooler than in Tucson.  You will want to wear layers.  While this program is entirely indoors, you will want to walk around the mountain a bit before and after.

Fun with the Sun is family friendly!  Kids above age 7 are welcome!

 $42 per person/ $20 for children
