    This Friday we held a solar observation event along side the ROG

    for the flamsteed members we had a great great turnout > 300 members of theĀ public had a chance to view the sun which was in my eyes pretty active with prominences going most of the way around the circumferences of the sun we saw only one small sunspot around the 7 o’clock area

    It was a mixture of sunshine and cloud as was expected but the by the public WOW’s which is my measure of success we did well šŸ™‚

    Grey and Christina was grapping hold of the publicĀ  and Clive was Delivering a great insight to ourĀ  closet star including why Hydrogen Alpha looks red to our eyes

    Mike and Nick taking up the challenge for the viewing in theĀ scope and trust me looking after theĀ scope is no easy matter as it seems every one wants to grab hold of the eyepiece šŸ˜€ when looking atĀ though the scope

    All in all we had a great day at the ROG andĀ as aĀ team we workedĀ  reallyĀ  well

    As a junior member I would like to take this chance to say thank you to all took part in this event and engorge others to take up the challenge and talk to the public weather it beĀ solar or night timeĀ observatory
