Scott Curry's first outreach Dec 28th 2011

Post by solarchat » Thu Dec 29, 2011 1:45 am

Me and Scott went to his neighborhood common area and showed the Sun today! He did his first outreach event and is now reporting it to NSN!

Scott got a Baader wedge on loan from the club and he is now ready to take it on!



Here's some pics from the event...

















(we watched a C-class flare go off around 12:40EDT)

Great stuff. Just read the Nightsky posting. 20 ppl for a common area sounds excellent to me. Great work.
