Hi all,

Does anyone know the times of the year (and roughly what time) that Sky users have the sun-outage where the Sun is directly behind Optus D1?

I just checked this month's Skywatch under the Newsflash bit, and they say viewers will be affected from 28 March through to 13 April, between 1.15pm and 2.20pm. They also mentioned it happens at the beginning of September as well, but no specific dates.
