Rover George's Astronomy Notes Introduction and Note #1: Viewing the Sun

Posted on August 10, 2017 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

Welcome to Rover George’s Astronomy Notes.  Each Note will be a short discussion about some aspect of astronomy designed to help Scouts—or anyone else—learn about the sky.  I will try to keep each note brief so that Scouts can print them and take them into the field.  They will be posted on my blog on BPSA Trailhead.  

What will be covered?

Eventually I hope to cover constellations and sky lore, motions in the sky, the Moon, observing planets, finding north, resources…

Give it a look!  I also plan to post more astronomy resources here in my Trailhead blog.

Included in the 7zip file are the planisphere files, assembly instructions, and use instructions.  Here's the file:…
