Heaton Hall
Heaton Park, Prestwich, Lancashire, M25 2SW

Heaton Park Astronomy Group will be hosting an event in front of Heaton Hall to help people watch the eclipse safely. We will have special solar telescopes set up, and also a limited number of eclipse glasses to hand out – one per household, first come first served!

Covid precautions will be observed, with strict social distancing and anyone wishing to look through a solar telescope will have to sanitise their hands first and wear a fresh face mask. Sanitiser and face masks will be provided.

Small voluntary donations to help cover the cost of eclipse glasses, sanitiser and face masks would be appreciated.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 10/06/2021

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.
