The Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics of the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (UMCS) in Lublin is inviting participants on 13-15 September 2022, at the monument to the university’s patron saint, to take part in open shows of the Sun, which will be organised as part of the Lublin Science Festival.

Using appropriate telescopes, we will look straight into the Sun together, announces the UMCS. During the show, we will observe solar protuberances at the edge of the Sun’s disk and in its background (filaments), as well as sunspots. At the show, two telescopes and binoculars will be available to observe the Sun.

The show is aimed at all those interested in astronomy and those who are laymen in the field. 

The event is intended to bring closer the mysteries of the phenomena occurring on the Sun and their influence on the state of the Earth’s atmosphere and its magnetic field. During the demonstrations, it will be possible to talk to and ask questions of specialists and astronomy enthusiasts in Lublin.
