Heaton Park Farm Centre
Middleton Road, Manchester, M25 2SW
In anticipation of the return of dark skies after the summer and the start of a new observing season members of the Heaton Park Astronomy Group will be holding an open day at the Farm Centre in the heart of Heaton Park. Special solar telescopes will allow you to see the Sun like you’ve never seen it before! Astronomers will be on hand to answer your astronomical questions and you can find out more about their regular stargazing sessions!
