Spiraling summer solstice at FLC

Audience watches astronomy projection
Light passes through a window – a 50-pound block of precast concrete with an opening in the shape of a spiral – and projects on the opposite wall early Friday morning in the Great Hall at the Center of Southwest Studies. The spiral is formed at the summer solstice by the rays of the sun passing through the “Solstice Window” created by Scott Parsons.
The annual event attracted 35 visitors. “I read about it and just wanted to see it,” Holly Jobson said.
