Rockets, Rockets, and ROCKETS. The weekend of July 18th and 19th offer a one of a kind, unique event that takes place only here in Southern Colorado. The Chili Blaster hosted by the Southern Colorado Rocketeers (SCR). Two full days of amateur rocketeers and student interns from United Launch Alliance and Ball Aerospace testing their builds in the Colorado sky. Rockets range in size from your standard 1 foot tall beginner model to the largest flown in the state, some 30ft. in height. And to support our friends at SCR SCAS will be on hand with a booth and solar rated telescopes and glasses to provide incredible views of our local star, the Sun. Society members will give tours of the Sun through specialized telescopes and talk with visitors about what they are seeing and in many cases what they are not seeing but can certainly feel. Curious? Check out the picture for details of the event and we hope to see you there.
