8:00 PM - Call to order and introduction of tonight's program:

Speaker:

PBS NOVA video "Secrets of the Sun"

Presentation:

"It contains 99.9 percent of all the matter in our solar system and sheds hot plasma at nearly a million miles an hour. The temperature at its core is a staggering 27 million degrees Fahrenheit. It convulses, it blazes, it sings! You know it as the SUN."

Our next two meetings will showcase the Secrets of our nearest star, the Sun. In March, the ACA welcomes the return of eclipse-chasers, Jodi and Roy McCullough, Mahoning Valley Astronomical Society, who will share their total solar eclipse experiences, including Sumatra, Indonesia.

THIS IS THE YEAR OF THE GREAT AMERICAN ECLIPSE  --  August 21, 2017

There will be a lot of information provided in these two meetings: how to best prepare for the event, where you can still obtain reservations and where club members are planning to observe this celestial phenomena.
