Family Stargazing Night
Families are invited to join us for an unmissable after-hours evening of stargazing at Jodrell Bank. -A wonderful opportunity to get started in astronomy.
You’ll learn how to navigate the skies and locate the stars using a variety of tools from planispheres to telescopes. And, you’ll be able to enjoy a series of short talks and demonstrations throughout the evening too. There’ll even be an opportunity to view the moon in close detail with our large scale moon projection.
Along with Jodrell Bank’s own astronomers, Macclesfield Astronomical Society will be on hand with telescopes and binoculars to use throughout the evening.
Thursday 26th October, 6:30pm – 9:30pm*
Booking required, tickets: £8.00
Part of Manchester Science Festival
- In response to demand, there are two Family Stargazing evenings this Autumn -the second event will take place on Thursday 2nd November
