Big Cool Science Festival

Cool Science 1a

A little solar observing at the Cool Science Festival today with Bruce Bookout and Leo Sacks pictured.

Hal, Tristan and Dave were also there showing views of the Sun.

 

Leo gave some great demonstrations with a Ping Pong eyeball and a kebab skewer of what happens when you look through a telescope without a solar filter.
