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 [5] for publicizing all of them!

Everyone is welcome, see you there!
