Amateur experiments for solar eclipse

| February 13, 2015

On Friday 20 March 2015 a partial solar eclipse will be visible from the UK.

The path of totality will pass north of the UK, but up to 89 percent of totality may be experienced, depending on where you live.

As part of British Science Week, the RSGB has prepared a simple experiment using a portable medium wave radio and we’re encouraging schools and others to get involved.

If you are a radio amateur, short wave listener or have more advanced equipment, there are other ways in which you could take the experiment further.

You’ll find more information and a outline of the experiment on the RSGB website at (2-page/878KB PDF).

The results will be shared with the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and will also be published in RadCom.
