May I say Seanie that the club here in Limerick got the glasses last week in time out monthly meeting, they went down very well, we have been handing them out at a prolific rate,
Well done to yourself and all those in Ifas who organised these !

Thanks Dave, it's a team effort behind the scenes. I'm glad they were well-received by everyone.

TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO GET YOUR FREE SOLAR VIEWER!

As tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, then you should send your SAE to me today in order for me to get it on Wednesday, and send you back your viewer on the same day to have it on Thursday.


Thanks,

Oh, and to be charged €10 is a rip-off by the way! ;)

I gather it's €10 to see their projection of the Sun too. Maybe I should undercut them and only charge £5 for the show I'm putting on in Larne :)

The Sky at Night magazine included a pair of glasses with the magazine this month. A good magazine and a pair of solar glasses for under €10 . No additional €5 P&P charge either. Available in any Easons store and most good newsagents. No brainer :whistle:
Can't beat the IFAS SAE deal though-well done Seanie.

I've just found out that a commercial flight from Reykjavik to London Heathrow has decided to intercept the eclipse. The flight is only €355 so it's a major bargain if people want a last-minute way to see the eclipse. FI450.

And to think it's cheaper than 36 eclipse glasses...

Here is a fraction of what I received on behalf of IFAS to claim a free solar viewer. Thanks to you all for taking part!



My one last request to those of you who got one (after you share and enjoy them) is to post a selfie with them and share or tag the Irish Federation of Astronomical Societies on Facebook - it encourages more people to take note of solar astronomy safety, and boosts the IFAS profile too.
