On Saturday 26 August 2017, we have the last of this year’s solar observing sessions at Great Notley Country Park. We will have specialist solar telescopes set up to observe the Sun in complete safety. You will be able to see any visible sunspots, as well as prominences and flares, and we will be happy to answer questions on astronomy and telescopes in general.
Pop along any time between midday and 3pm (approximately) to take a look at our nearest star. We will be setting up in the field opposite the main building, next to the overflow car park.
Observing is free (site parking fee applies).
Viewing is weather dependent. If it is cloudy you may not see anything, and if it’s raining the session will be cancelled.
NEVER look at the Sun without proper specialist equipment. Permanent eye damage will result.
