AAVSO Webinar with Dr. Kristine Larsen and Gabriel Murawski
In this webinar, Dr. Larsen will discuss "Seeing Spots (Safely): Getting Started in Solar Observing." 2021 is the perfect time to begin observing the closest variable star, our sun. As it awakens from solar minimum, the sun presents the observer with an ever-changing constellation of sunspots and other features. Dr. Larsen will walk you through the basics of solar activity and the techniques that allow you to safely monitor it.

Gabriel Murawski will follow with "The MGAB catalog of variable stars." The search of variable stars listed in the MGAB catalog started in 2017 and led to the discovery of more than three thousand new variable stars. His talk is split into three parts: how the catalog evolved through time, how variable stars were found and analyzed, and what the catalog contains, including statistics and the most interesting findings.
