About 40 people could enjoy the views of the active Sun through the H-alpha and visible filters. At sunset the team removed the visible filter from the front of the white-light telescope, so that the audience could also enjoy the views of Venus (close to Quadrature) during daylight. The observations finished at 23:00 local time.
