Join the Pacific Science Center’s planetarium specialist Alice Enevoldsen for a look at the vernal equinox on Monday, March 19 in West Seattle.
Alice, whose website you can find HERE, will be at Solstice Park in West Seattle to meet you at 6:45pm. The Spring Equinox should take place around 7:05pm.
Alice says she’ll be there even if it’s cloudy because sometime the Sun will peek through for a short while during sunset. If it’s snowing, driving rain or sleet, Alice will stay curled up at home with a cup of tea.
Solstice Park is located at in Seattle. Once you’re in the park there are trails that lead up to the overlook. Walk past the tennis courts, through the P-Patch and continue up the hill. When the trail ends go five more feet to enter the stonework circle and get the best views of sunset.
