AELC Treasurer and amateur astronomer Tom Sprecher invites you to a demonstration of his home observatory and equipment related to astrophotography, by connecting to his observatory over the internet. Tom will present the basics of creating an astrophoto, and if the weather cooperates, Tom hopes to show an astrophoto being collected during the presentation. - AELC Officer Elections (AELC Member attendance strongly encouraged)

The sun's polarity switch is a natural part of "solar max" — the period of peak activity during what averages out to be roughly an 11-year cycle. According to NASA, this year will mark the fourth time since 1976 that scientists have observed the 180-degree pole flip."
