A heads up ladies and gentlemen, the 'online' solarsphere festival will be taking place all day and night on saturday 19th december.

There is a whole festive lineup of talks, zoom chats, music and general all round fun.

Of particular interest to us here on solarchat is that Helen Mason will be talking. Helen = Stereo spaceprobe.

Good to see you again at 1452z on YouTube Mark.

I've been watching most of Solarsphere (like you on and off to do whatever) and very interesting earlier,
so will no doubt be on here for the rest of the sessions.

The music interlude just now was great and especially to hear and see Brian May and of course Sir Patrick.

Best Wishes on your talk soon.

Regards
Terry
