Lyn Smith, the BAA Solar Section Director, told the engrossing story of our nearest star, The Sun.   She described the solar cycles and sunspots.  With the latest cycle (Cycle 24) just ending, Lyn reflected on the solar activity observed and shared her own personal highlights.  Lyn used historic information about the solar cycle patterns to give some insight into what we can expect from Cycle 25, starting now.  The Sun can easily be observed by everyone – but it is EXTREMELY important to do this safely.  Watch the video to learn more!
