Watching the Sun and Moon in Kendal…

The Eddington Astronomical Society of Kendal is holding two free public observing events in the next week or so, and everyone is invited!

First, this coming Saturday afternoon, we’ll be showing people the Sun at our “Sunwatch”…


We’ll have several telescopes on the Park set up to show people the Su, safely, either by using solar filters or by projecting its image onto card or screens. As luck would have it there’s a nice big juicy sunspot group coming into view on the Sun, and by Saturday it should be very well placed, so why not come along and take a look?

Then, on the evening of Friday Auust 5th, we’ll be back in the Pak again, this time to look at the Moon…

Weather permitting, of course, we’ll be showing people the craters, mountains and seas of the Moon through lots of different telescopes.

And while we’re talking about things going on in Kendal, if you want to see some real meteorites, I’ve just loaned part of my collection to Kendal Museum, and it’s now on display for everyone to see…

The display includes my small piece of the asteroid Vesta.

So, lots happening in Kendal over the next week or so. Hope to see you at some time!
