The Science team have risk assessed the event and will be following Health & Safety guidance issued by the Royal Astronomical Society & CLEAPSS.
Viewing a solar eclipse is potentially hazardous and should only be attempted with caution, following Health & Safety advice. You should never, ever – under any circumstances – look directly at the sun.
