The Escambia Amateur Astronomers and Draco Productions celebrated Earth Day Pensacola 2019 by settting up solar telescopes, handing out star charts and gaze schedules, displaying our meteorite collection, and hosting a student workshop where families built 20 more of the STEM spyglasses for Ciencia Puerto Rico.  This shipment will make 85 of these 20X 31mm terrestrial scopes with 1" Draco Baader solar filters available to the elementary science classrooms in Maria ravaged Puerto Rico.  Here is the link to our gallery, with great solar shots.
