Mr. Metcalf is also a consultant and guest with the University of South Carolina Astronomy Department and the SC State Museum’s observatory. Mr. Metcalf brought along a telescope and a spectroscope to allow students to observe sunspots and to identify the composition of the sun. He also brought a meteorite that crashed in Argentina 4,000 years ago for students to examine.
