Manila Planetarium. ALPers who were present at the meeting were James Kevin Ty, Bel
Pabunan, Nel Lagda, Maximo Sacro Jr. , Theodore Gutierrez, Sheri Mae Domingo

The meeting started at around 3:30pm with the usual H-Alpha solar observation with a Coronado PST telescope mounted on a sturdy tripod. The group was able to see a numerous prominence around the Sun's disk as well as bright flare surrounding the AR960 sunspot group. Although the weather was really hot that afternoon, the group still had a great time watching the prominences.
Then, they proceeded to the auditorium where ALP president James Kevin Ty gave a short but interesting lecture on observing the Sun safely. He also discuss the different types of solar observations that can be observe which are the white light, H-Alpha as well as Calcium-K line as well as different type of solar observation techniques.
