Solar Viewing @ The White Lion Baldock High Street
May 18 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

We have all looked up at the night sky and marvelled at the stars and the moon swirling above us. Some of us may have used binoculars or a telescope to look in more detail.

But how many of us have looked at the sun?

Not very many………..Why?

Well, it’s very bright, hurts your eyes, and if you put a lens in the way will burn and start fires! It’s dangerous!

Letchworth and District Astronomical Society (LDAS) in conjunction with The Baldock Festival have organised a solar viewing day to change this!

Come along between12:00 and 16:00 when there will be specialist equipment and members of LDAS available to let you look at the sun safely and join the small group of people who have observed the sun!
