Free telescope observations of Sun will be possible in Ufa

On August 24, from 12.00 to 14.00, subject to clear weather, free telescope observations of the Sun will take place at the Friendship Monument pier.

As Bashinform News Agency was informed in the press service of the Department of Culture and Art of the Ufa City Administration, this Thursday, everyone will be able to observe the Sun free of charge in a special telescope Coronado SolarMax II 90. It has a highly complex, unique filtering system. This makes it possible to observe the details of the chromosphere on the solar disk and provides the highest image contrast.

“The Sun, although it is located close to the Earth in terms of space, nevertheless, in terms of its structure, it provides considerable ground for scientific research. One of the most curious features of this star is its sunspots. They were first recorded by observers almost 1000 years before our era. It is one of the most mysterious objects of study. The physical processes in it and on its surface still require explanation. Solar activity affects many processes in space, such as the variability of the magnetic field,” said the Ufa City Planetarium.

For younger guests, the planetarium staff will hold a master class, "How to find the Constellation," and will teach you to determine which stars can be seen in the summer and winter skies.

The planetarium also reminded us that looking at the heavenly body without special filters is dangerous.
