Solar Observing: High Line
Sep 10 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Solar Observing: High Line

The AAA hosts solar observing on the High Line one Tuesday afternoon each month from April through August. We also have nighttime observing on the High Line later that same day.

Observing will take place near the 14th Street entrance or just south of the Standard Hotel, which crosses over the High Line near 13th Street. For more information about the High Line, including directions, please visit our High Line page.

We have telescopes equipped with special filters for viewing the Sun. You may bring your own equipment, but we insist on strict safety provisions due to the dangers of improperly filtered direct solar viewing. All devices used for direct solar viewing must be fitted with approved filters.

Expert solar astronomer and AAA board member Tom Haeberle leads our Solar Observing. When you arrive, just look for Tom and his solar-filtered Telescope and enjoy.

Sunrise Tai Chi @ H.H. Biddle House (in Conference House Park)
Sep 16 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

Tai Chi focuses the mind while training the body — meditation through movement. Once learned, it can be maintained easily as a healthy life-long practice, easily adapted to your abilities and/or limitations. Due to continuous movements, especially shifting body weight from one leg to another, Tai Chi delivers countless benefits, including increased strength, conditioning, balance, coordination, flexibility, stamina, range of motion, bone density, joint lubrication, mind/body connection; and more confidence, peace of mind thru-out the day, improved sleep at night. Note that this is the oldest original Chen-Style Tai Chi, taught by traditional instruction, where each student learns at their own pace and builds up their knowledge bit-by-bit.
