If weather permits, Bob Mizon will be showing images of the Sun through a telescope, using a safe projection method.
If cloudy, there will be a talk indoors about the Sun, its past, present and future, and how everything that happens on Earth ultimately depends on it.
Did you know that your existence depends on hydrogen being cooked into helium!?
