  • October Bartow Friday Fest Sidewalk Astronomy
    6:00 pm-9:00 pm
    10-19-2018

    So, what’s the latest IPAS news? We have a new venue. Where? Bartow, FL.
    And what do we do there? Just what we do everywhere, sort of. It’s called sidewalk astronomy.

    So, what is sidewalk astronomy? Sidewalk astronomy is no more than amateur astronomers, like us, setting up our telescopes in a public place (like on a busy sidewalk) and letting anyone who comes by look through the scopes at whatever we find in the night sky to see. We answer any questions about astronomy and the celestial objects we’re viewing.

    Our purpose is to educate anyone interested in the basics of astronomy, let them see the wonders of the universe and hopefully, find a few new amateurs who may want to join us.

    So come on out to Bartow, visit the many vendors there to see what they have to offer and visit us and see the universe up close. It will be an experience you won’t forget. See you there.

  • Sun ‘n Fun Aerospace Discovery Day

    4175 Medulla Rd, Lakeland, FL 33811

    We’ve been at the Aerospace Discovery for many years, doing what we do best. We don’t fly planes or make rockets, but we can tell you how space affects aviation, and our climate. And we’ll do just that. But we don’t just talk. We’ll have our scopes out to let you look at the Sun.

    Don’t worry, it’s safe. We have the solar filters. Actually, we have the white light filters so you can see the Sunspots, and the H-alpha filters so you can see the prominences, flares and even the granulation on the Sun’s surface.

    So, if you want to learn about aviation and the Sun, come out and visit us. We’ll have our scopes set up in front of the museum. Come out and learn.
