Wild Skies Weekend

Join CAG and guest speaker Dr Lyndsay Fletcher, a Solar Physicist based at the University of Glasgow for a weekend of events where you can:

  • learn about the Sun & how it generates "weather" in space that affects our planet. Find out how this stormy space weather can produce the magnificent diplays of Northern Lights we often see from Caithness
  • learn how detailed imaging of the Sun by telescopes in space is helping scientists better understand how it works
  • the North Highlands of Scotland generally has low levels of light pollution allowing breathtaking views of the night sky to be enjoyed - learn where some of the better stargazing spots in Caithness are, and what you might be able to see at them
  • join CAG for solar observing and night sky observing events using their equipment.

See our Calendar section for further details.
