Astronomy isn’t only about the night skies. Charles Barclay and the Friends of the Blackett Observatory introduce you to solar observing in this special location. These local experts will show you the Sun up close, through Solar goggles, Solar scopes and telescopes as long as it’s a clear day!
There are two sessions available to be booked on the day, the first at 09:45 and the second at 10:45.
