Due to a forecast of poor weather late Saturday, the Autumnal Equinox Observation program at New River State Park Wagoner Access on NC88E has been rescheduled for Sunday, Sept. 23.


The program is planned in honor of the beginning of autumn.


David Sitar, a faculty member with the Department of Physics and Astronomy at ASU, and two undergrad assistants, Jeremy Bowen and Kayla Zimmerman, will lead the program.


The program will still start at 3 p.m. for a unique look at the surface of the sun using a special filter. Then Sitar will give a presentation at 7 p.m. Night sky observations will take place starting at 8 p.m. where the New River State Park’s eight inch Celestron telescope will be used to look at the moon and other celestial objects.


Sitar joined the university in 2011 from Eastern Michigan University where he finished graduate work in science education and taught introductory astronomy and physics labs. He was also a part-time physics and astronomy instructor at Washtenaw Community College during his time as a graduate student.


Sitar currently teaches introductory astronomy labs three nights a week at the Rankin GoTo Lab Facilities located on the campus of ASU. Along with his teaching schedule, he also maintains the 15 lab telescopes, the computers that control the scopes from the lab room below, designs astronomy lab curricula, and is the Rankin community and educational outreach coordinator.


For more information and directions, call 982-2587 or 982-5817. Rain date is Saturday, Sept. 29.
