Learn about the sun and solar phenomena while viewing the sun via a live feed from MIT Wallace Astrophysical Observatory (WAO). Following Q&A, there will be an astrophotography “show & tell” slide show. Attendees are encouraged to submit one of their own photos of the night sky or observing equipment, to show and tell its brief story! Images should be submitted to Tim Brothers (bro@mit.edu) who will create a slideshow from photo submissions. Please include your name with your photo. People who submit a photo will be given a minute to briefly describe their image. Images need to be submitted by noon, January 27 to be included in the slideshow. Following the activity, the slideshow will be posted on the MKI and WAO/EAPS websites.
