A huge thanks goes out to The Charlie Bates Solar Astronomy Project for donating the solar viewing glasses. From over 300 logged events held between January 1st and March 31 that used Night Sky Network resources, these 5 outreach events were chosen at random. The more events you log, the better your club's chances of winning these wonderful quarterly prizes.


By logging outreach events for the Network, we capture valuable information about the materials developed for the Network members: how they are being used, who they are reaching, and how we can improve future materials. In short, they help us prove that the Night Sky Network is having an impact. Thanks to all the clubs that log events. Be sure to get your events logged by the end of April to qualify for the upcoming solar ToolKit, to be released in May!
