National Capital Astronomers Mtg: Dr. Rachel Osten, The Uses of Stellar Flares

This is a regular meeting of the National Capital Astronomers. The meeting is hosted at the UM Observatory. Presentations (speakers) usually go for about an hour + Q&A and then there is the usual club business stuff. There is observing after the meeting, WEATHER-PERMITTING!! 3300 Metzerott is for the UM Systems Admin bldg roughly across the street. We suggest that individuals meet there about 7 and then carpool over to the observatory parking lot as the Obs lot is a bit smaller!

    The lecture was surprisingly lucid, for even though I lack education, I was able to understand the material as it was being presented. The audience was almost exclusively composed of genius scientists, so the august company was impressive.

    This was a regular meeting of the National Capital Astronomers, attended by Elizabeth Warner, George Brunner, and me, at the University of Maryland Observatory.

    Rachel Osten gave a lecture on "THE USES OF STELLAR FLARES".

    Afterwards, Elizabeth Warner gave George Brunner and me a tour of the Observatory.

    But, due to poor weather, no star gazing could be done that night.

    Thank you.
