CAS Participates in the Annual 10TV and Metro Parks Outdoor Adventure

10TV and the Columbus Metro Parks hosts an annual event called the Outdoor Adventure.  CAS attended as an exhibiter and shared views of our closest star, the Sun, and passed out free NASA posters to guests of the event. CAS members enjoyed sharing information about the upcoming eclipse and talked about how our sun works.

CAS wishes to thank 10TV and the Metro Parks for hosting the event.  Our volunteers for sharing views and knowledge of the Sun.  And of course the Metro Park Rangers and staff for keeping everything running smoothly and safe throughout the event. It was a great event and fun was had by all.  We look forward to next year!
