Summer Solstice on Stearns Wharf

Solstice Artist Kenny Galindo will be displaying the Solar System – with each planet scaled down in size and spinning at an accurate speed. Each planet will be distanced from each other according to a scaled down version of our solar system. You might even find the artist Kenny, or members of the SBCC Astronomy Club hanging out by a planet to explain to you all the wonders each planet has to offer.
