Last Sun 2013 – Stellar!

Observe The Sun Safely! Never look at the Sun without a proper filter!
Solar Programs are held 1st Sunday of every Month 2:00-4:00 PM at Houge Park  weather permitting.

And it should look stellar on the 1st of 2014 too!

No solar scope? Join us Sunday Jan 5th at Houge Park 2-4PM!

Beautiful splatter of Sunspots – larger ones with webs of penumbra (SN 93 NOAA), plage and faculae. And H-alpha highlight was massive detached prominence – 20 Earth diam long 15 high!
