Manchester Astronomical Society weekly meeting

Manchester Astronomical Society weekly meeting

Thursday 7th December 2023 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Blackett Lecture Theatre
Schuster Building, University of Manchester, Manchester, Lancashire, M13 9PL

You are invited to join the members of the Manchester Astronomical Society for their regular weekly meetings at the University of Manchester.

In normal circumstances, the group meet at their Godlee Observatory. However, due to ongoing renovations, the group has relocated to The Blackett Theatre in the Shuster building for their lecture meetings.

The group aims to encourage interest in astronomy for newcomers and seasoned observers, and many of their lectures are geared towards beginners. You are welcome to attend a few meetings as their guest before being asked to join the Society.

Visitors without the University of Manchester swipe cards will need to contact the Society on arrival to arrange for someone to let you into the building. See the Manchester Astronomical Society website for more details.

Please note that this has already taken place on 07/12/2023

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.
