As well as not supporting modern features and web standards, old versions of browsers - especially Internet Explorer - can expose your computer to security risks.

National Astronomy Week 2014 Logo

Join us for a day of astronomy, view the Sun through our dedicated solar telescopes, marvel at sunspots and prominences and learn how to make telescopes.
The theme of the day will be Jupiter and we have a special guest coming along to give a rather special talk and in the evening see Jupiter and its Galilean moons through a variety of telescopes (all outside activities dependant on weather).

This event is free entry and has free car parking, and is with thanks to The Conservation Volunteers.
