Public open house event of the Kiso Observatory

2017-08-17

Public open house event of ISEE Kiso Observatory was held on August 5 and 6, 2017. About 130 visitors enjoyed watching the large radio telescope (http://stsw1.isee.nagoya-u.ac.jp/jpg/KIT.jpg), which is used to observe the interplanetary scintillation of the solar wind. We explained the solar wind and space weather studies of the Solar Wind Group (http://stsw1.stelab.nagoya-u.ac.jp/index-e.html) using several panels.

This public open house event joined a Summer Stamp Rally Event of Nagano prefecture. We opened a temporal stamp station at our observatory, which attracted many children and their families.
