Sun-gazing

Sadly the forecast for tomorrow’s Celebrate the Sun event at Blashford is looking rather cloudy, however members from Fordingbridge Astronomers will still be on hand, with their fingers firmly crossed for some glimpses of our closest star, and we hope you can join us.

In celebration of International Sun Day, members from the group will be offering information and views of the sun through a number of solar telescopes (weather permitting!), along with a show and tell of solar observing kit and sun related talks.

Visitors can turn up at any time between 10am and 3pm and the group will be based near the lower car park. Talks will take place in the Education Centre, please ask on the day for details. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

All donations from the event will be shared between Fordingbridge Astronomers and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.

Please remember, NEVER observe the Sun through any instrument that is not designed for the purpose: Permanent blindness may result.
