Sackville Street, Manchester, M1 3NL
Join members of the Manchester Astronomical Society for their weekly Thursday night observing session at the Godlee Observatory. Members of the public are welcome to attend a few sessions for free before deciding if they would like to join the society. This is an awesome opportunity to observe through the dual mounted telescopes which despite the light pollution from Manchester city centre give excellent views of the moon and planets.
