Three of us, Bob Jacoby, Frank Garner and Theo Ramakers went to McConnell Middle for this year’s Astronomy Day for some of the 6th grade classes.  Three classes of Mrs. Sandidge, and two of Mr. Yoder, learned what  effect traveling through the Solar System has on gravity.  In addition, they learned some interesting facts about some of the planets.  Then it went outside to observe the Sun through a number of Ha Scopes and White Light telescopes.  They all were very surprised to see the activity on the Sun and went home having a better understanding of our Solar System.
