Stephen Ramsden

A featured speaker this year is Stephen Ramsden, who in 2008 founded and continues to direct a completely grassroots effort - The Charlie Bates Solar Astronomy Project - which, without government, corporate or university support, has become the highest volume hands-on astronomy nonprofit in the world operating in 17 countries and headquartered in Atlanta, GA.

Stephen and his members personally share the Sun, at the eyepiece, with over 250,000 people yearly through state of the art narrowband solar viewing equipment. Come and look at the Sun with Stephen and listen to his lecture on current solar activity and the importance of science in the community.
