Hi Stephen...

Great video of the outreach event there...looks like a good crowd!

Does the decline in solar activity dampen the kids impressions, or is it a case of being able to look at the sun in the first place still get their attention? I would expect that some nice sunspots in white light would certainly be better...at least in Ha there are often some proms.

Brian,
The stidens dont know what an active Sun looks like and this is the first time for every student. They don’t seem to mind it if there aren’t any major features. The Sun is cool with zero activity.
