Every Sunday from September through to April the members of Hampstead Scientific Society open the doors to their fabulous Hampstead Observatory for some mid-day observing of the Sun through their special solar telescope. Everyone is invited to join them for this free event (no booking required) with donations being very much appreciated!
Note that this event is dependent on the weather and will only go ahead if the skies are clear. Visitors are encouraged to check the pinned post at the top of the Society’s Facebook page to confirm the event is going ahead before setting off.
