SPECIAL SOLAR VIEWING SESSION ON 13 OCTOBER

From 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm on Thursday the 13th, HRPO will have a special solar viewing session for the public. This is due to a Level 1 geomagnetic storm possibly occurring then, and due to four Active Regions (areas where sunspots are prone to develop) on the Earth♁-facing side of the Sun☉. The public can view the Sun☉ via Sunspotter, filtered nighttime scope and hydrogen-alpha telescope. The viewing is for all ages and there is no admission fee. Solar viewers will be for sale at $2 each.
