The Sun-n-Fun Fly-in & Expo was a great success for us. We introduced many aviation enthusiasts to the world of astronomy. And of course, our “regulars” from all around the globe came back to spend some time with us. As usual, we “wowed” them with the sights of our solar system and galaxy. It was a true pleasure to bring the universe to them.
Now we will be back to Sun-n-Fun for more solar observing. Sun-n-Fun is having their “Fly Into Summer” Family Day. Entrance is free. This includes the museum. And we’ll be there to help you observe the Sun “up close and personal”.
The Sun is on the “down side” of a solar cycle; Sunspots are becoming more rare every week (see our post for more information). But there’s more to the Sun than Sunspots. There are still the occasional flares to be seen. And the surface mechanics are always interesting to watch.
So, if you’ll be in the Lakeland area, come see us and combine your love for aviation and astronomy. You’ll be glad you did.
Let us bring the universe to you.
