There are several different ways entire sections of our nation’s Grid can be damaged or destroyed. Indeed, it’s happened before at least on a small scale. What about a large-scale event? Many experts believe it’s a matter of when, not if. Are we prepared? The Highland Road Park Observatory will have a lecture on this crucial subject on Friday 16 February at 7:30pm. The talk is aimed at a general adult audience and there is no admission fee.

Lisa Calhoun has penned Superflare, a novel concerning the rough situation endured by a rural Louisiana family in the immediate aftermath of damaging coronal mass ejection striking the Earth. The book is a "doorstopper" at over 600 pages; it was a very compelling and suspenseful read, easily one of the more important fiction texts to come out of our state in the past five decades.

Calhoun will be at International Astronomy Day, Saturday the 21st at the Highland Road Park Observatory.
