I was invited for a solar observation session, by RABTT society who is very active in reforming traditional educational routines in the lives of school children. Today i went to Government Comprehensive Girls High School which is located at Wahdat Road, Lahore.
I first distributed the solar glasses to all the students and talked briefly about how to view to sun safely. They were all so very excited about actually looking at the sun with the solar scope that they wanted me to skip the words and go outside to watch the sun.
With the Lunt60 telescope and Lunt zoom eyepiece, they saw the sun in its full glory.. a big prominence, some smaller ones and a couple of sunspots near a big filament. I have rarely seen the excitment they were having on their faces.
Thanks RABTT for this wonderful oppertunity to show the sun to these students.
Oh and in the end, one of my new friends and my fellow TEDx UET speaker Omer Najam appeared from nowhere! Good to see you janab!
