Members and visitors attend a Summer event at High Top
We normally hold an open evening at our High Top observatory, where members, families and friends can meet local residents from Flaunden.
In 2011 this was a 'Solar viewing event' when we had the use of three telescopes specially designed for observing the sun. The weather wasn't perfect, with a good deal of cloud, but we did manage to observe several sunspots and prominences.
