Orwell Astronomical Society event in Ipswich

A very early start for Linda and me as we drove the fifty or so miles to Suffolk University on the Ipswich Quayside. A somewhat long day (from 5.00am until 6.00pm) was quite successful, both in terms of sales and outreach. We met lots of old friends and enjoyed observing the Sun, both projected and using a Coronado H-alpha solar scope. The East Anglian Rocket Society had some incredible missiles, including a 1/5 scale V2: most impressive!

Great to chat with rock-star astro-imager Nik Szymanek and other familiar faces before driving home through the pouring rain.
