Solar Observing at Great Notley – Monday 26th May
Update 26/5/14: Weather reports are mixed this morning but we will be on site from 12.00 midday in the hope the Sun comes out. Be aware that if it is cloudy, you may not get to see anything, and if it rains we will not be putting any telescopes out. Fingers crossed that we get some blue sky.
NEAS will be holding a public Solar Observing day at Great Notley on Monday 26th May,beginning at 12pm midday and running through until around 3pm. This observing session is open to everyone, so please do come along and take a look at our nearest star through specialist solar telescopes. There is no charge (but there may be a site parking fee). We set up in the field behind the main building, a short walk from the public car park. Please park in the public car park.
Please note that observing is weather dependent. If it is cloudy, you may not get to see anything, and if it is raining we will call the event off. If it is cloudy we will have members on site to answer any questions you might have about astronomy.
NEVER look at the Sun with any telescope or binoculars without specialist equipment. Permanent eye damage will result.
