- We have noticed that the Sun sets about 15 minutes earlier than the USNO ‘s official prediction says, because of the horizon altitude.
- The moment of the solstice/equinox doesn’t usually happen during this event, but I leave it here for you to know.
- Where: I will host Winter 2020’s Solstice Sunset watch via webcast through zoom.us: VIA ZOOM, register in advance for this meeting: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJYscuCrrjwrGdRWEIsvHF6yvA7bsXafGBqA 
- I want to support folks in continued social distancing to protect our most vulnerable from SARS-Cov-2/coronavirus. I recommend you find a nice outdoor space to watch the sunset from, and tune in to the participatory webcast for some social interaction and celebration of the turning of the seasons.
- While you’re waiting for the link, go to zoom.us to download the Zoom webconference software, find a webcam (or use your phone), and locate a headset with a microphone.
Where: Solstice Park  – all the way up the hill from the tennis courts (or, if you’re not in Seattle, wherever you have a view of the western horizon!)
- Who: Everyone welcome, as usual. (Please do leash your dogs as we usually have a good number of people, kids, and other dogs around.)
Come watch the sunset at Solstice Park in West Seattle. I’ll be there even if it is cloudy because sometimes the Sun peeks through just as it begins to set, but if it is driving rain or a thunderstorm I’m staying home with some tea!

This event is my part of the NASA’s Solar System Ambassador program, and thanks to West Seattle Blog  for publicizing all of them!
Everyone is welcome, see you there!
