Fun Handouts for Solar Street Astro

It's wintry here in Reno, but clear days are on the way soon, then I will begin doing solar programs. I received these really neat handouts from the nice folks at NASA/SOHO Outreach office. It is an 8.5" disk of the sun, with a scale model of the earth that is punched out so the user is able to do different scale exercises in regards to the earth/sun relationship. I cannot wait to use these! These will help me to fulfill my goal of helping others to understand to universe in fun, unexpected ways.
