Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival

Observe The Sun Safely - Never look at the Sun without a proper filter! 
Solar Programs are held 1st Sunday of every Month 2:00-4:00 PM at Houge Park  weather permitting

Thousands of folks and families gathered for the 2012 Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival sponsored by the Almaden Valley Women's Club. And For a couple of years now SJAA has been apart of the festival.

Below are some pics of SJAA at the event starting off with Ed Wong (Left) talking with a patron.

These two girls took time out from their practice for their dance show to see the surface of sun in H-alpha. That got the whole gang to come over and take a look.

 Very happy girl who got too see our sun and two sunspots

 It is always a good day when there are sunspots visible and H-Alpha flares. We had two sunspots and although we had , a decent sized one plus

All in all a great day for SJAA outreach - thanks to all who helped!
