Sunny outlook at the Mayfield Valley Centre this Saturday

Have your say

Here comes the sun - and about time too.

But how much do we actually know about the golden ball we see in the sky occasionally - other than we all love to welcome it?

Well now is your chance to find out more.

This Saturday, Sheffield Astronomical Society will host a Sungazing Live event from 2pm to 6pm.

The events takes place at the Mayfield Environmental Centre in David Lane, Fulwood, Sheffield, S10 4PH.

A spokesman said: “Come and observe the sun and see sunspots and solar flares safely, using the society’s specialist equipment.

“Talk to society astronomers and find out some amazing things about our nearest star.”

The event is suitable for all age groups, and entirely outdoors so weather dependent. Call 07930 233 475 for updates.
