The Solar Viewing event at Sharples School has been confirmed.

The viewing will start at 16:00 and finish at 17:00 weather permitting, therefore we need to arrive at 15:45 in the Science Car Park to setup.

If we are unable to view the Sun and its dry we have been asked to assist / demonstrate how to set up the mounts and scopes for viewing and operation. Failing that we have been asked to provide a presentation on the Sun and setting up a telescope.

Bolton News will be here to take pictures, they are interested in the Primary school pupils studying alongside their Year 10s

Thanks to all those who came down to Sharples School for the Solar viewing afternoon. Despite the forecast there were a few breaks in the clouds and the two huge sunspots were visible. Presumably these were what caused the aurora earlier in the week.
