We have purchase a baadar solar filter for Ross's 10nch Dobby enabling us to do astronomy during the day and show the public our sun safely, educating people about sun spots and the suns solar cycle.
Our main aim is to fundraise so we can build a mobile observatory.
You can help us to reach, teach and inspire more people across the UK. We are aiming to buy a van, wrap it, kit it out with scopes, an awning, projector and screen, events tent, and have enough funds to keep it up and running for two years.
Meaning that UK Astronomy can bring the skies to you...!
If you would like to sponsor a planet or star and have your name on the side of the MOBY or just help
Our latest achievement was being able to purchase a 16 inch tracking dobby, to see deep space objects, teach astrophotography, pretty much anything in the sky! Thanks to a member of UK Astronomy we now have this amazing scope which will be the center piece in our Mobile Observatory.
Thanks to a kind member of the FB group were able to purchase a Hydrogen Alpha Scope enabling us to do more talks during the day, showing the public solar prominences and doing school presentations about our sun, solar flares
and how it affects our planet.
We have purchased a number of inflatable solar system's to take to schools and local interest groups to help with 'hands on' education teaching children of all ages about the solar system, and our place in it.
As well as the mobile observatory our ultimate goal is to one day become a hub for Astronomy outreach programmes, socities and other charitable communities, being able to support, donate, lend gear and even give grants to other Astronomy groups enabling them to reach more people and to make Astronomy in the UK accessible to all.
So we need your help fundraising, donating or even just popping to an event to help, you can find more info on the SUPPORT US section.
LETS MAKE THE SKIES OPEN TO ALL..........
