Rebuild my astronomical observatory

$45 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 2 people in 10 months
Asking for funds to rebuild observatory and support in public outreach. Over the past 20 years, my outreach program has brought the wonders of the night sky to schools, Guides, Scouts, retirement facilities, provincial parks and camp grounds as well as interviews on various radio stations across Canada. Many images used for these presentations were acquired via the telescope. My goal in outreach is to educate the public and motivate our youth to peruse science and engineering to one day create the next major breakthrough.

However since I could not relocate my research observatory in a recent move to the countryside, I must rebuild to continue search for comets and asteroids that might pose a threat to the Earth. The night sky is a place of beauty, mystery and in some cases, danger.

Thank you for your support.

 

Je demande le soutien du public pour amasser des fondsafin de reconstruire un observatoire. Au cours des 20 dernières années, mon programme de sensibilisation a apporté les merveilles du ciel de nuit aux écoles, chez les guides et les scouts, aux maisons de retraite, aux parcs provinciaux et aux terrains de camping, ainsi que des entrevues sur plusieurs stations de radio à travers le Canada. Beaucoup d'images utilisées pour ces présentations ont été acquis par l'intermédiaire du télescope. Mon but dans cette sensibilisation est d'éduquer le public et de motiver nos jeunes à prendre connaissance de la science et de l'ingénierie à un jour créer la prochaine percée majeure.

Toutefois, depuis que je ne pouvais pas bouger mon observatoire de recherche lors d'un récent déménagement à la campagne, je dois reconstruire afin de continuer la recherche de comètes et d'astéroïdes qui pourraient poser une menace pour la Terre. Le ciel nocturne est un lieu de beauté, de mystère et, dans certains cas, de danger.
