Default Starry Safari Update

Here is how the Starry Safari went, on Friday night the smoke from the Ethan Fire in the west valley really obscured our viewing, but Sam, Frank, Rod, and Sue still set up and did some solar viewing before anyway, even if the smoke covered the Sun. The view of the sun was ok, you could not see any detail but it was visible. We had around 100 people stop by to do viewing with us, we closed up at 8:15 since the smoke covered the entire sky at sunset as you can see from my photos.
