See the Sun through an Hydrogen-Alpha filter (May 2 11am-4pm)

Stumble Upon Toolbar
The folks at Khan Scope Centre on 3243 Dufferin Street south of Yorkdale are demonstrating a Lunt Hydrogen Alpha solar telescope between 11am and 4pm (if the clouds stay away).  If you've seen the Sun through a normal solar filter you'll be surprised at the details these filters reveal.  

Who knows perhaps there'll be a sunspot too?

BTW They're having a tent sale on Saturday May 30th.
