Stargazing Skywatchers

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.

Invitation to ScopeX

Are you a keen Planet Spotter with an eye for stargazing? Join our Suntoy team at the ScopeX Telescope and Astronomy Expo where we will be honouring the star at the centre of the Solar System, the Sun.

We are excitedly revealing our new Solar AstroWheel, a revolving sculpture of Consol Solar Jars with red LEDs for optimum telescopic night vision. Each solar light teaches interesting facts about the eight planets. At 18h00 it will light up for the star party. As Carl Sagan said, “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”

We look forward to sharing sunny smiles with you, so come say hello at our Suntoy stand under the aeroplane wing.
Date: Saturday, 13 September 2014
