Lincoln Hills Astronomy Group
May 2018

This month Carla LaFave had a special treat for us. Carla gave a wonderful
talk on "The Sun." This was the first presentation she's given to our group and she did a fantastic job.
Carla was able to take a very complex discussion and break it down into manageable chunks
that were informative as well as entertaining. Ron Yelton gave a short talk on his astrophotos.
Thanks to Carla LaFave and Bill Weaver for the photos.
