The ScopeX Telescope and Astronomy Exhibition invited us to escape the urban jungle while still in its midst. Our Suntoy stand was a palette of yellows with golden sunflowers and cadmium lemons inside Consol Solar Jars. Solar powered SunCars zoomed by and SunFans spun.
Amateur astronomers with portable telescopes observed a sunspot on the photosphere of the Sun. At sunset, Consol Solar Jars with red LEDs and a cloudless sky offered optimum viewing conditions for sky chart reading and stargazing. We observed the Moon and its rocky mantle of craters, Venus, the Southern Cross, the Jewel Box star cluster and the ringed planet, Saturn. The perfect way to end a sunny day.
Interesting fact: Red light preserves night vision as it is the only light that doesn’t adjust the retina or contract the pupil of the eye. Our Consol Solar Jars are an astronomers best friend.
Suntoy was invited to the ScopeX Telescope and Astronomy Exhibition at The Military Museum in Johannesburg. We scattered our Consol Solar Jars with red LEDs along the perimeter of the museum's gardens and set the scene for an astronomers dream come true! Red light preserves night vision for astronomers as it is the only light that doesn’t adjust the retina or contract the pupil of the eye. Red light allows optimum telescopic vision for reading sky charts. The Consol Solar Jar is definitely an astronomers best friend!
