Please note new date and location
Ken Tapping of the National Research Council and Dominion Radio Astronomical Observatory, an RASC-OC member and well known astronomy and science writer for our local newspapers, including the Penticton Herald. Ken will talk about The Sun, The Earth, and Us.
How has the Sun been performing lately, as predicted? What effect is it having on our planet? What about the magnetic field of both the Sun and the Earth? Why does the polarity of the Sun change every 11 or so years? How are we being affected, and what trends do we accentuate with our human behaviours? Or is the Sun possibly the culprit in climate change? Don’t miss Ken’s report and analysis of the Sun, our local star.
The meeting will be held at 7.15pm in the Lecture Theatre of the Ashnola building
of the Penticton campus of Okanagan College.
