Four ASEM members (Jim Twellman, Richard Kamp, Grant Martin and Jim Roe) set up solar telescopes at the Dubray Middle School in St. Peters from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm to help them observe Earth Day.  Three of the telescopes used white light filters that showed two nice sunspot groups while the Club's 60 mm H-alpha scope showed prominences and a nice filament.  There were some 300 students plus numerous teachers and helpers at the event that went very well, contrary to the weather forecast.
