September 7, 2013 - May 3, 2014
First Saturday of every month, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.

Safely gaze upon the closest star to our home planet - the Sun. Our astronomers take aim at the sun to reveal the secrets hidden behind its glare. Take a peek at the Sun’s surface to see what kind of day the sun is having. Sometimes the surface is placid and serene but more often than not, it is boiling with sunspots and solar flares.

Please check the Science Live! Calendar for scheduled dates.

Crosby Observatory is included in Orlando Science Center Admission.
