SIDEWALK ASTRONOMERS NAME SOLAR COORDINATOR

 
 
 
 
The Sidewalk Astronomers are happy to announce that we have created the Solar Sidewalk Astronomers division with Pamela Shivak as our coordinator. We have always encouraged solar sessions with the public and lately there has been such interest in solar activities that we decided it needed a division of its own. We're still in the development stage so we would love to hear suggestions about activities, recognition, resources and whatever thoughts you have.

The Solar Division of the Sidewalk Astronomers carries on the Legacy of John Dobson.

Back in 1968, it was probably inconceivable that solar backyard astronomy would become as popular as it is now, with people all over the world safely viewing the sun through state of the art solar equipment and sharing the splendor of the sun with the public through public outreach.
