Spectacular Science for Schools
International SUNday 24th June
Initiated by the Charlie Bates Solar Astronomy Project (CBSAP), we are hoping to celebrate with a sunny summer day. Come and join in the fun and take the opportunity to learn about the Sun and look at it safely through a 90mm solar telescope donated by Stephen Ramsden, founder of CBSAP. Other solar scopes will be available including those from local Astronomy Societies. Even if we do not see the Sun you can still learn all about it! This is all offered at NO extra cost to your normal admission price. REMEMBER: NEVER look directly at the Sun! You can only look safely at the Sun through specialist equipment.
