Super Science Saturday on May 3, 2014 saw some of our members showing the sun and its spots to the public on a rather cloudy day. The early part of the day lent itself to good views of the sun, but clouds began to accumulate more and more as the day wore on. Thanks go to members Jen & Dave Skitt, Victor Davis, Gene Ramsey, Larry Kane and yours truly. We had two Coronado solar scopes, two reflectors and one binocular station. Lots of posters were on display at our booth as well. Lots of children were excited to receive and use a free pair of special glasses from Jen & Dave Skitt to view the sun too.
Our next event will also be at the State Museum. We have been asked to bring our scopes to the museum to celebrate NJ’s 350th anniversary on Sunday, June 22nd from 10:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m. on the grounds of the State Museum. An email about this was sent out to members on May 27. Bill Murray will announce this at our June meeting too.
