Manchester Astronomical Society weekly meeting at Godlee Observatory

Thursday 25th November 2021 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Godlee Observatory
Sackville Street, Manchester, M1 3NL

On most Thursday’s, members of the Manchester Astronomical Society meet at the Godlee Observatory, located on top of the Sackville Building at the University of Manchester.

These events often include a talk or presentation; then, weather permitting, they may also observe using telescopes.

Unfortunately, the observatory itself is not wheelchair accessible. In addition, children under the age of 11 cannot attend due to health and safety rules.

Visitors are welcome to attend a few of these meetings as a guest before being invited to join the Society.

Access to the building is by prior arrangement. If you are interested in attending this meeting, please see the visitor information page on the Manchester Astronomical Society website.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 25/11/2021

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.
