OPEN DAY AT THE ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATORY
  • Rue du Lorier, St Pierre du Bois, Guernsey
    GY8 0DS
  • Monday 27th May 10:30am until 12:30pm
There will be slide show presentations about the Sun. The Open Day will proceed independent of the weather.

The Observatory telescopes are equipped with special filters enabling solar observation to be done safely. (Looking at the sun with any optical instrument is normally very dangerous.) There is a 'heliostat' for projecting an image of the sun onto a screen. Sunspots may be visible.

Parking available at La Houguette School, Rue Des Paysans.

Follow the signs from the school. Walk 100 yards up the road, turn left onto Rue du Lorier, then immediately right, behind a large bunker.
