Eclipse Sponsors

In the tradition of Galileo, Kepler and all scientists past and present...the work of science has always been made possible with the the help of sponsors...in the case of Galileo or Kepler...by prominent families. Today one submits a proposal to help fund the research to be done. In that great tradition, a means of having those members of the public interested in continuing the time honored method of funding science has been established. I thank you for your support and if you are so inclined, to help defray a portion of the cost of the expedition follow the link at https://www.gofundme.com/papas-2017-great-american-eclipse.
