Regular Meeting
Topic: The Sun and Spaceweather
Speaker: Paul Mortfield (Toronto)

Paul will talk about our nearest star using many of the amazing images captured by various NASA solar spacecraft missions. He'll also introduce us to the field of SpaceWeather and its impact on space exploration and every day life.

Paul Mortfield is a space scientist involved in science education and outreach and recently returned to Canada. While in California he was involved with projects for NASA's Sun-Earth Connection and with Stanford University's Solar Observatories Group involved with the SOHO spacecraft.

He is also a regular television commentator on astronomy, having appeared on CBS, the Discovery Channel, and as the host of NASA-TV's educational broadcasts for Sun-Earth Day and solar astronomy. For fun, Paul uses his backyard scopes for research and astrophotography.
