Sleeping Bear and NRAO

Coming soon: my trip to NRAO. I am beside myself with excitement. Not literally...

In other news: After such a long, quiet minimum, I am REALLY looking forward to the rise in solar activity. It's kind of like wanting to wake a sleeping bear, but how beautiful are the arcing plasma rivers and the wispy coronal holes leaking what will become the Auroral displays in our polar skies? Alan Friedman's image on is incredible!
