Sun-n-Fun 2017

Sun-n-Fun earlier this April was just that: lots of Sun and lots of fun. There was more than airplanes in the sky. Here we’re giving some instruction and education about the Sun while we actually looked at it. Although the Sun was relatively quiet, we tracked a group of Sunspots across the solar disk all week and witnessed a small solar prominence emanating from the group as it rounded the viewable edge of the Sun.

Here we are setting up for the night show, star gazing that is. We had some nice views of Jupiter, the Moon, stars and star clusters.

But the fireworks turned out to be a bit brighter than the stars; louder too. But all in all, everyone enjoyed looking through our scopes and seeing the wonders of space, up close and personal.

The Blue Angels were impressive too.
