The North Essex Astronomical Society will have several telescopes set up with special filters for observing sunspots and solar prominences with complete safety. Society members will be on hand to answer questions.
Everyone is welcome, there's no need to book and the event is free.
The Society sets up behind Great Notley Country Park's Discovery Centre - just follow the walkway round.
The event depends upon on clear weather. If it's cloudy we may not get to see anything and if it’s raining it's likely the event will be postponed so please consider this before setting out to the park.
