James Edgar enjoys using every opportunity to share his hobby with others through presentations followed by a chance for participants, young and old, to view our Sun through solar telescopes during the day, and a myriad of night time objects through quality telescopes.

The photos on the left show James on the beach at Good Spirit Provincial Park showing the Sun to passersby.

Below are photos from a backyard event to view the transit of the planet Venus across the face of the Sun in June of 2012.  This is the last time this century that a Venus transit, visible from the Earth, will occur.
