SNAA August Meeting - Solar Observing & Presentation

Starting at 6.30pm on Monday 1st July - Paxton Pits Visitor Centre (PE19 6ET)

Free of Charge to all new visitors

SNAA members will have both white light and Hydrogen Alpha telescopes setup to allow us to safely view The Sun.

Come along an marvel as the The Sun comes alive when viewed in the H-Alpha spectrum. View the Prominences and watch The Sun boil before your eyes. Unlike the more sedate white light view, H-Alpha pulls back the curtain to expose The Sun for what it is; a ferocious, unpredictable ball of incandescent hydrogen gas.
