International Astronomy Day-Saturday, May 2

The International Astronomy Day was this past weekend, Saturday May 2, and LSES was there promoting the sun and all the great benefits we get from using the sun's energy.  The kids who came out were able to see first hand how the sun is used to power a water fountain! 

Other people were interested in how solar can power your appliances and run your home when there is a power outage.  But there was some hesitation because of the cost of solar, but after we told them of the generous tax credits we can receive then they were even more interested in solar!   

To see more about the day and the other groups that came out to celebrate our sky and beyond you can go to the Highland Road Park Observatory's website at

We want to thank our volunteers that came out and helped us promote solar, thanks Jennifer Thompson and Cameron Faxon!
