Solarfest 2010

Solarfest 2010 takes place at the Dunsink Observatory in Dublin, on Saturday 12th June. The Irish Federation of Astronomical Science (IFAS), along with the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS), have organised the one-day event to discuss solar astronomy.  Admission is free, and the event will include speakers from Trinity College Dublin, leading members of Ireland’s amateur astronomy community and an international speaker. Weather permitting, there will also be solar observing sessions. A tour of the facility will also take place to see the dome and the 12" Grubb refractor. Spaces are limited to 60 seats so if you are interested in attending this event, contact Michael O'Connell by emailing here.
