The Northern Virginia Astronomy Club (NOVAC) hosted the Fall 2013 Star Gaze on October 5, 2013 at C.M. Crockett Park in Midland, VA. One of the speakers was Ciprian Sufitchi, who introduced our radio astronomy club to NOVAC members and had a presentation with the title "A Radio-Astronomy Project: Detect Solar Flares From Your Backyard", offering practical solutions to monitor SID events using SuperSID. He also provided live demonstrations on the field. Weather was great and the star gaze party turned out to be a success.
