A beautiful California day provided a good crowd and fun viewing of the solar disk. Malika's projector showed the major sunspots. And Michael Swartz's dual refractor set up (Neutral density green and H-alpha - both with binoculars) simultaneously displayed the sunspot and prominences in great detail
