About

Families are invited to visit Jodrell Bank 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 a 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.

Part of Manchester Science Festival
