What Observatory?

Who dat takin pictures?

We had an excellent turn-out for the annual picnic on Sunday August 7th.† The weather was good for the picnic, but somewhat uncooperative for solar viewing!†† Too much broken cloud until later.† Nevertheless, after 3pm we had good views of three spots but only two very small prominences.


Our efforts at recruitment didnít yield much.† The most enthusiastic visitors were a family from Germany.† Always fun to show off the scope to an appreciative audience though.
