This program is desinged to recognize those amateurs that consistently
take telescopes out to the public, practising "Urban Guerilla Astronomy" on street corners, in shopping center parking
lots, in front of movie theaters, and in dark sky areas where crowds of people are gathered.
The program is simple; take a scope out, fill out an Event Report and when you've done enough
events and reached 50 hours for the Bronze Level, mail or email the reports along with any supporting material and we'll
send you the Bronze Level pin and post your name on the website. Then keep on doing events until you reach the next level.
We know that it may seem hard, but solar sidewalk events are eligible and
spending a few hours each month on the sidewalk will quickly get you to the Bronze Level. Admittedly, it will take more time
to get to the higher levels, but if it were easy it wouldn't be worth much.
You can also earn free solar glasses for your solar observing events! Just hold 3 events and report them and
get 50 free glasses!!!
