Look to New Baltimore Sky With Amateur Astronomer
Chesterfield Township resident Bob Trembley offers a free program Sundays until Oct. 14 in Burke Park in downtown New Baltimore.
Chesterfield Township resident Bob Trembley may be considered an amateur astronomer, but he's got years of celestial observations under his telescope.
"I've been an amateur astronomer since about the age of 8--I wore out my first telescope," Trembley said Wednesday. "I was 9 years old when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon and that pretty much shaped my entire life."
On Sundays, he shares his love of the universe with others for free from 10 a.m. to noon at the entrance of Burke Park in downtown New Baltimore. During those sessions, Trembley brings his solar-safe telescopes and meteorites from his collection. Fellow space observers may be able to view sunspots and solar prominences, as well as learn more about science findings beyond this world.
Trembley holds the sessions, ending Oct. 14, in cooperation with the New Baltimore Farmers' Market. This was the first summer he has offered them. Previously he's given classroom lectures and he's currently a Warren Astronomical Society member.
"The feedback's been pretty good," he said of crowd. "I got a couple people who have attended every week."
