My students need to see stars! One of the topics my science standards covers is the formation, classification, and evolution of stars. My students need to be able to see with their own eyes how a typical star(our Sun!) actually appears at a relatively close distance. They will appreciate the opportunity to see something not otherwise possible without this specialized optical equipment. When my students see sunspots and solar prominences with their own eyes, they will exclaim, "wow, I can't believe I just saw that!" My students need to be able to connect with my space science unit personally. I can accomplish this by allowing them to conduct some daytime solar astronomy. Because of the daytime hours students attend school, traditional night astronomy is not possible. But, even more exciting is the fact that most of my students don't know yet that we can aim my telescope directly at the Sun and have a "star party" with our closest stellar neighbor. Nothing brightens a school day more than getting the students out of their chairs, into the sunlight, and learning something awesome!
