On Saturday Oct 5th, 2013 at 10am Aurora Lipper gave an astronomical presentation at the SLO library to the general public entitled “Black Holes, Solar Flares, and Jupiter’s Lasers”. We had over 80 people join us on this bright sunny morning, Dave Majors, Joseph Carro, and Aurora Lipper amazed the crowd with their solar scopes that viewed the sun in both optical and h-alpha wavelengths. We saw a couple of really neat sunspots, and several small, spiky flares that the crowd went wild over! In attendance there were seniors, families, young professionals, and everything in between.
