Sidewalk Astronomy Solar Day at Otterspool: Saturday, 1st October, 2022

Saturday, 1st October 2022 @ 12:30 16:30 BST

Come along to our Solar Day at the Miller & Carter Steakhouse, Otterspool, L17 5AL from 12:30 til 16:30 where we’ll have specially adapted telescopes in which you can safely view the sun. In addition, there will be a talk on, no matter the weather.


Two images of the solar disc, side-by-side. The first shows the sun in hydrogen-alpha light, and the second shows the sun in ordinary visible white light. The hydrogen-alpha image makes it possible to see details like prominences, flares and other structures present in the solar chromosphere, while the white-light image shows details in the solar photosphere, such as sunspots.
