This Thursday will bring the second meeting of the new astronomical society.
We will begin at 5pm with a talk about the Sun. If the weather is kind we will follow this with observations of the Sun using our hydrogen-alpha solar telescope. When conditions are favourable the hydrogen-alpha telescope will show features on the Sun such as sunspots, granulation, flares and filaments.
We will be meeting downstairs in the observatory building, follow the signs from main reception.
The meeting is open to members of the public, if you are not currently a member of the society please email the observatory to book your places. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
(Remember: it is dangerous to observe the sun with any telescope other than those with a specialist solar filter, this can lead to permanent eye damage or blindness).
