Thank you for visiting The Charlie Bates Solar Astronomy Project!  (501c3)

My program takes observatory quality telescopes and cameras to regional schools and festivals in order to teach our community about the Sun and its many interesting features.  I started in 2008 and see roughly 80,000 people annually at over 70 events per year. This program is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) and survives solely on public and private support.  Please feel free to use my resources in any way you see fit for education, ask questions about solar observing, or contact me to set up a free visit.  If at some point you would like to contribute to the cause, I would be very grateful.  Paypal your donation to info@charliebates.org (or send your pledge via email) or click the donate link.
