About the Event

During the summer months, we run several public solar viewing sessions at the Royal Observatory Greenwich. These sessions prove to be extremely popular, with many thousands of visitors attending the solar viewing events over the course of the summer.

All of these sessions are run by Flamsteed volunteers, and they wouldn’t take place without the support of our membership. We are always looking for new people to get involved, so we are running this training session to encourage members to get involved in our solar viewing events.

Following this, we will look at the solar telescopes that we use at the ROG, and take people through the set-up procedures and details on how we run the events. We will then look at our plans for the summer solar viewing sessions.

If you are an existing solar viewing volunteer, you are encouraged to attend, so that you understand our plans for the solar viewing season. New volunteers would, of course, be most welcome to attend.

We expect the event to last just under 2 hours in total, starting at 7pm sharp, and finishing at around 8.45pm.


THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO MEMBERS OF THE FLAMSTEED ASTRONOMY SOCIETY ONLY. Please do not book a place on this event if you are not a member of the society. Your booking will be cancelled if your name does not appear on our membership database.
