Charlie Bates in Iqaluit Canada 63' North and -25C!

My main purpose in being involved in this hobby is to spread it to others. If you're an outreach nut like I am, please post images and descriptions of your outreach events in here.

Charlie Bates in Iqaluit Canada 63' North and -25C!

Post by Bojan » Tue May 24, 2016 5:38 pm

I performed this outreach event a few months ago, but wanted to share some beautiful pictures from the event.

This was at Ecole des Trois Soleils (that's "school of three Suns", don't worry, I only saw one), and was at 63 degrees north!!

I was only able to bring my solarmax 40 and trusty sunglasses for kids, but it was still a great event, albeit a bit chilly, at -25C

Congratulations on an adventurous outreach. Even being at only 45 degrees north, in northern Wisconsin USA, we occasionally conjure up a crisp, cool, absolutely clear -20F day. Love those days!!
