Everyone is invited to join the members of High Legh Astronomical Society in their charming and welcoming observatory for this one of their regular Friday evening open nights.

Please note that the observatory will be open only if the weather is good and for two to three hours after dusk. The start time of these events will change throughout the course of the year with the earliest time being 8pm. If you are interested in attending we recommend you contact the Society in advance to confirm opening times and let them know you'll be going along.

These events are free of charge and make for a great opportunity for an evening of stargazing with a friendly and enthusiastic bunch of amateur astronomers!

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting


This event is being organised by High Legh Community Observatory who should be contacted if you have any queries. We highly recommend you confirm this event is indeed going ahead before travelling.
