Salford Observatory open evening

Salford Observatory open evening

Wednesday every week from May 2022 to August 2022

Salford Observatory
Chaseley Road, Chasely Fields, Lancashire, M6 7DZ

The friendly and welcoming astronomers from the Salford Astronomical Society open their fantastic observatory on Wednesday evenings of most weeks throughout the whole year. These events occur no matter the weather, with presentations taking place if the skies are cloudy.

The observatory is home to an incredible 18″ aperture reflecting telescope, and the Society renovated the facility in 2020 with a new warm room and projector screen.

The observatory offers solar viewing through the summer months and may stay open for longer each evening if the skies are clear.

Note that on the second Wednesday of each month between September and April the observatory is closed as the Society meets at Swinton Gateway for their public lecture evening.

A visit is highly recommended! Clear skies!
