Solar Tower

Our Solar Tower is specially built for observing solar activities with an area of 1,500 square meters and height of 36 meters. There is a vacuum solar telescope with a diameter of 350mm, which is one of the very few professional telescopes opened to the public. With precision spectrometer, observation and record system, the data from the solar telescope can be captured and used for the purposes of education and research.

Solar Tower is a base for science education and research centre. It is also an exhibition centre and venue for training to the public.
