The popular Kids Fest returned to the Carl Parker Center on the campus of Lamar State College-Port Arthur on Saturday, June 20th. They invited ASSET to set up an astronomical display featuring the Sun.

Roger and Doug had their H-Alpha scopes and Will had a white filter scope. Sharon had the SunSpotters. Last year they had over 2,000 kids enjoy the many different events of the day, and they probably had another 2,000 this year.

As the kids lined up to take a look at the Sun, Will & Courtney, Roger, Doug, Terry, Sharon, Howard & Jane had the opportunity to pick up hours on their Outreach Certificates.

Terry Myer had his revamped 6” Criterion Dynascope and 60mm scope, from the late 50’s and 60’s, on display. Great job Terry!
