Join AWB President Mike Simmons for a special online tour of the historic Snow Solar Telescope live from Mount Wilson Observatory in California, USA. This telescope, the first permanent facility designed to study the physics of the Sun, was built in 1904 and is still used for educational programs. This tour of the horizonal telescope and below-ground 18-foot spectorgraph will provide an insight into how astronomers learn about the only star close enough to study in detail, our Sun.
