Bring a covered dish, a lawn chair to rest on, and something for the charity auction held right after lunch....that raises funds used to help those in need, not to mention it's a lot of fun and laughs!

Highlights of the Sun, by SDO Over Last 5 Years

The Sun is the source of what, in part, is needed for ionospheric HF propagation. For the last five years, we have had an amazing front-row seat to the Sun's activity, minute by minute: the SDO spacecraft. And, we expect many more years of super high definition viewing.

Here is a video with highlights of the last five years of solar activity as seen by the SDO spacecraft. This is worth seeing on a larger monitor, so try to view it full screen on something larger than your palm. The music is pretty good too. It is worth the 20-some minutes of stunning viewing. Be sure to share!

Enjoy!
