Family Stargazing Night at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, Macclesfield

26 October 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm (£8)

Families are invited to 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.
