Paisley Observatory hosted an Eclipse special on the morning of 20th March with no less than four telescopes trained on the biggest solar event in 16 years. The clouds threatened to ruin the big day but fortunately at precisely 9.31 the clouds thinned enough to see the big moment, before once again being blanketed in cloud. The cloud cleared again around 10am in time to see a good part of the eclipse.

HISTORY

IMG_3998w1

Paisley is the largest town in Scotland. The town  has a rich history; from it’s 12th century Cluniac Abbey, it’s world famous Paisley Pattern Shawls, and its position at the forefront of the Thread Industry all of which brought great wealth and prosperity to the Town, enabling it to build it’s inspiring Town Hall, Museum and Art Gallery, Observatory, Schools and numerous fine Churches.

Paisley is surrounded by many historical towns and villages and is also ideally situated as a gateway to the Highlands and Islands, with Loch Lomond only 20 minutes away and Edinburgh a mere 45 minutes, and with the airport within 2 miles of the centre of Paisley, it really is the ideal base for visitors from near and far.
