2 comments on “Solar astronomy with three name tags

  1. I love “sidewalk” type events – it’s wonderful to involve the public in things like astronomy. I’m always slightly surprised by how many people are fascinated by astronomy.

    • Some of my cohorts don’t get it… “why,” they ask “set up telescopes at night on sidewalks under (usually) light-polluted skies?” The point is we’re taking astronomy to the people and hoping to ignite an interest. Once they’re interested, they may be lured to darker skies! Of course, the solar event skirts the light pollution issue!
