Great Notley Solar Eclipse Viewing – BBC Stargazing Live
As many of you are probably aware, there will be an eclipse of the Sun on Friday 20th March, in the morning.
For those of us not lucky enough to be in the Faroe Isles at the time, the eclipse will be partial, with the Moon covering 80+% of the Sun as viewed from Essex. Weather permitting it promises to be a spectacular event and the best eclipse seen from the UK since 1999.
We are planning a public eclipse viewing event at Great Notley Country Park to tie in with BBC Stargazing LIVE, which this year is focused on the eclipse.
The eclipse begins around 8.30am, and runs through until around 10.30am.
Unfortunatley SOLAR GLASSES ARE NOW SOLD OUT. Sorry!
We will, however, have solar telescopes out, and a limited number of glasses and viewing strips for you to borrow, so hopefully everyone will have a chance to see something, if the weather behaves!
We hope to see some of you there!
