See the Sun as you've never seen it before

While enjoying your afternoon refreshments at the Dairy Barn, you can safely enjoy various views of our local star with Bishop Auckland Astronomical Society.

See Solar flares and prominences in the H-alpha wavelength. 


Safe solar viewing with specialist telescopes

Our specialist telescopes show LIVE narrowband views of the Sun which you will usually only see in books or online.

The Calcium-H wavelength gives views in near ultra-violet.


Also see Sunspots

There will also be at least one other telescope... capable of showing any sunspots which may be present on the day.

Members of BAAS will be operating the telescopes and are always happy to share their knowledge in all aspects of astronomy.
