Beginners Evening and Winter Exhibition

Goostrey Village Hall
Goostrey, Macclesfield, Cheshire, CW4 8PE

Join the friendly members of the Macclesfield Astronomical Society for this special event for beginners.

Have you got a telescope that you want to learn how to use it? Are you wondering what equipment to buy? Do you want to get into astrophotography? Do you want to learn more about the Stars, Planets and the Cosmos? Do you want to follow space missions and learn about the exploration of our universe?

If so, why not come along and meet with some like minded people? The group welcomes everyone regardless of background or experience!

(If clear we may be able to demonstrate some equipment outside – wrap up warmly!)

Please book your ticket via Eventbrite.

Please note that this has already taken place on 27/01/2024

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
