Who is Timmy Telescope?

Timmy Telescope is our little green mascot who goes everywhere with us. He helps remind children and adults to be careful and slow down when near the telescopes.

Timmy resides in Albuquerque, NM with Roger and Linda Kennedy. He prefers to observe the sun, but also likes to observe the moon and often provides lunar programs. Several times a year he takes his Solar Astronomy Outreach on the road and visits different parts of the United States.
