STAR CLUB in Kustavi, every first Saturday of the month

Hello everyone!

Yesterday we had our Star club here in Kustavi. The telescope was outside and the theme of the day was the SUN.

Many curious people came and peeked through the lens to see the sun in an other way.
Some saw the sun straight away, some were not sure what they were looking at.

It was nice to see the reaction of the people and the comments and small conversation they lead on. All in all it was a nice day, the people left home with a new perspective of our Sun.

I think my mission is complete and i am looking forward for next time and observe other sky objects like our Sun.

(Remember when looking at the sun you have to protect your eyes and use filters with your telescopes, binoculars or other viewing instruments.)
