The Sun Goes Out For the FT Team

Recently, Fraser from the FT Team was fortunate enough to be invited to talk at the Global Hands On Universe (GHOU) conference in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The conference was timed to co-incide with the total solar eclipse which crossed the US from Oregon to South Carolina.

The conference, at the Hardin Planetarium brought together astronomy educators from the US and as far afield as Chile, China and Japan to discuss ways to collaborate using a wealth of astronomy resources including robotic telescopes such as the Faulkes Telescopes and the Impact Calculator from the Down2Earth project.
