Join us in celebrating Solar Week in Haleakala National Park! Visit the “House of the Sun” from Sunday, March 20 to Saturday, March 26, 2022, to learn about our closest star and study daylight astronomy. Solar Week, in collaboration with the National Science Foundation’s National Solar Observatory, will offer a range of chances for visitors to connect with an aspect of the park about which they may not have given much thought: the Sun.
All planned activities are free to the public and are included in the park entrance charge. There are no prerequisites for participation, such as reservations or sign-ups. Among the activities are:
