August
Public Solar Viewing Day
Mansfield and Sutton Astronomical Society
Sherwood Observatory Coxmoor Road Sutton in Ashfield NOtts NG17 5LF
Sat Aug 18, 2018
Time: 1000 until 1600
Price: Free admission (under 16's) MUST be accompanied by an adult
We will be holding our second public solar day on Saturday 18 August. If the weather is clear, and the Sun is shining, you will have the chance to view our life giving star and its activities across 93 million miles of the solar system through our specially filtered telescopes. Not only will you be able to see the Sun, you will also be able to “hear” it, and have a chance to detect incoming meteors with our radio astronomy equipment. To compliment the day, there will be a series of Sun themed talks in our lecture room by one of our members, and you will also be given a free factsheet to take away. If the weather is good, we may extend the session a little longer. Booking is not required. Free limited onsite parking. Refreshments. Disabled access to all areas. Please remember DO NOT look directly at the Sun as it can, and will, cause permanent damage to your eyes. All viewing is weather dependent (but this will not affect radio astronomy). Log on to our website at www.sherwood-observatory.org.uk for more information. Find us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/sherwoodobs We look forward to seeing you.
