We will be watching the transit from midday to 18.30 when the transit is over but if you would like to stay as we will be opening the observatory to observe the Moon with the society telescope till 22.00.
Please note, if using your own kit, please make suer you observe the sun SAFELY using a solar filter over the objective end of the telescope. If you need any advice, please speak to people at a meeting, and they will point you in the right direction.
