La Société Guernesiaise Astronomy Section is pleased to invite members of the public to come to our Observatory in Rue du Lorier, St Peters to watch the partial solar eclipse, when the moon will reach a maximum of almost 30% overlap of the sun’s diameter by 11:05am.
The eclipse starts at 10:03 and ends at 12:12.
 
We will have solar filters on telescopes as well as telescopic projection, pin hole projection, and eclipse glasses to try.
 
Members will be on hand to supervise equipment and advise on safety / answer questions.
 
Parking is available in the field across the main road by kind permission and will be signposted.
