The sky at night with blurred stars, and trees in the foreground

Moonshadows and Starlight

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017.

Starry, starry night… Visit Jodrell Bank for an unmissable after-hours evening of stargazing as seasoned astronomers show you how to navigate the skies and locate the stars using everything from planispheres to telescopes. Get up close and personal with the moon through a large-scale lunar projection and hear first-hand from astronomers how they use the Lovell telescope to piece together information on the stars and planets in our solar system, plus much more.  Along with Jodrell Bank’s own astronomers, Macclesfield Astronomical Society will be on hand with telescopes and binoculars to use throughout the evening.
