Picture taken from my tent while I was camping at Fox Lake. I have always been fascinated by science of all kinds and love to just stare at the sky. I am very fortunate to live in an area that without any difficulty I can escape most light pollution. I am a newly licenced amateur (Ham) radio operator and am just starting to pay closer attention to our sun than ever before. I always new that solar radiation had an effect on radio, however I never realized just how much....
Our LightSail test mission was successfully completed and our Kickstarter campaign ended June 26th, raising $1.24 million dollars for LightSail's 2016 solar sailing mission! Miss the Kickstarter campaign, but still want to donate? You can!
