Astrophotography for Urban Students
Organized by: Delvin Osborne
EVENT DATE Aug 28, 2015
The other day while I was talking to my kids and their friends about all the different planets and stars in outer space, one of them asked what did the planets actually looked like and all I could do is pull up a picture on google. It then occurred to me that not only have they not seen stars and planets with their own eyes, but I haven't either! The next day, I looked around for a local planetarium or public telescope so we can take a trip, but I couldn't find one in our area. I'm raising the money to purchase a telescope with astrophotography abilities which will become a huge learning tool that will not only show students that these things do exsist, and they have pictures to prove it! Once I have the telescope, I would love to host viewing parties in the local parks to give other students and parents the opportunity to observe what we have only scene on tv and in pictures.
