On December 19, The Mobile Observatory Project and Ben Davidson, the creator of the popular YouTube channel Suspicious0bservers, will be at Sci-Port in Shreveport, Louisiana.  Ben gives a daily internet report every morning covering sciences of the sun, space weather, and our planet in a short condensed summary.  Along with the daily reports, Ben has also produced many specialized educational videos covering an array of related scientific subjects.

Ben was classically trained in law and legal research but turned his attention toward the sciences upon receiving his JD. His web site has been a constant source of data dissemination inspiring public interest in a variety of scientific fields, including the electric universe theories.

Sci-Port’s resident astrophysicist Greg Andrews on the Mobile Observatory Project’s visit: “The arrival of the Davidsons and the Mobile Observatory is really exciting. They bring an insider’s perspective into heliophysics and how it relates to Earth. Solar weather has been studied for hundreds of years, yet we know so little. I’m anxious to hear their thoughts on the current solar cycle. The current cycle is weak when compared to other solar cycles and they may know some of the leading theories on why this is the case.”

Ben and his wife, Katherine, will be at Sci-Port from 2-5 p.m. on Friday, December 19. He will discuss the Earth-Sun connection and how it plays a role in our climate.  Admission is free and all ages are welcome.
