Observing is not just for the night sky. Once a month, on the 1st or 3rd Sunday of Every Month, we will hold a solar observing event either at JJ Melbourne Memorial Reserve in Terrey Hills or at the St Ignatius observatory overlooking the oval at St. Ignatius, starting at 11am. At the roundabout go straight into the College, go to the far end of the Oval on the Left. We will be on the grassed area.

Warning: Looking at the sun with the wrong equipment can cause permanent, irreparable retinal damage and should never be attempted. Rest assured the members of our solar group possess the equipment and knowledge to conduct our solar observing sessions safely, and can advise on the specialised equipment needed for those keen to purchase their own solar scope or filters. Please check our Calendar a couple of days before as the date may occasionally be changed due to weather forecasts or other events.
