The next in our series of 'Solar days' will be held at the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, Caste Espie, near Comber, Co Down, on Sunday 8 July, from 2.0. pm. to 5 p.m. There will be the usual selection of special telescopes for solar viewing, including H-alpha views, which are always spectacular. Has the Sun passed Solar Minimum yet? Will there be any spots of the new cycle visible?
Other attractions will be available too, including our intrepid Ulsternaut, Derek Heatly, in case of bad weather. If you have any sort of telescope capable of showing the Sun safely, bring it along. IAA members bringing telescopes or otherwise assisting at the event get in free.
All are welcome.
