Major Solar Eclipse in the UK - 20th March 2015. From 8.35am to 10.40am. From southern England around 82% of the sun will be covered by the moon at 9.42am. For safe oserving use Eclipse Glasses. They can be obtained on EBay for around £2 or purchase a free pair with the March edition of the BBC Sky at Night magazine. They are perfectly safe; ignore any government warnings; they have been used for many years all over the world - they ruined the 1999 eclipse over this.
7:00pm / Look out for Venus & Mars together low in the West & Jupiter in the East. Orion is now seen at its best with the Seven Sisters to the right in align with Orion's Belt.
With five different sized domes available, the main aim of The Astronomy Roadshow is to increase general interest in science. We visit 230-260 venues with the planetarium / 38,000 people a year - 760,000 since 1994; plus another 5,000 people a year via hall lectures. The world faces huge problems today; Famine, Energy & Material Shortages, Climate Change, Destruction of the Natural World, New Diseases etc; all can be solved by new science and policy. By increasing the number of people involved, we increase our chances of survival or fall upon very hard times and remain stuck here on Planet Earth for centuries. The 21st century is a unique era where we get this choice.
