My telescope is a magnet

Solomon and Yahmina are wondering what’s going on.

Yesterday I was making a Periscope broadcast with one of my telescopes.  Barbara and I were sitting in our driveway, she was staffing the camera as I put the telescope together and looked for sunspots.

As I zoomed in on the Sun, the kids across the street saw us.  The telescope was like a magnet.  They left their bikes and ran over to see what we were doing.

We looked at sunspots, and eventually their dad came over too.  We had a great time.
