Is Your Club in the Drawing for a Sunspotter? (updated list!)
Mike and Greg show off the Sun at the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley CA
 
We’re giving away 4 free Sunspotter Solar Telescopes for the New Year! It’s easy to qualify and your club’s chances are great.

These Sunspotters are perennial favorites for working with groups and children. We’re giving away 4 of them on December 5th, so be sure your club gets in the drawing. It's simple!

Just post five or more of your upcoming 2013 club events on the Public NSN calendar by Dec. 4th. You can even post your monthly meetings to qualify! (Hint: posting a recurring event is simple. See how here.) Be sure to post them Public on the NSN calendar so people can find them on mobile apps, NASA websites, and more. It’s a great way to get new people to your events!
