We celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing with a special event in Heaton Park - information displays all about the moon landing and Apollo programme, rocket models and meteorite samples. We had solar scopes set up so that visitors could look at the Sun safely - but unfortunately when the clouds parted the Sun was found to be devoid of sunspots and flares! Anyway, at least the weather was OK :)
