Summer Solstice Weekend at Jodrell Bank

Summer Solstice Weekend at Jodrell Bank

Saturday 22nd June 2019 from 11:00am to Sunday 23rd June 2019 16:00pm

Jodrell Bank Observatory
University of Manchester, Macclesfield, SK11 9DL

Visit Jodrell Bank on 22nd or 23rd June and take part in our fun family activities celebrating the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. There’ll be a variety of hands-on activities to help you discover more about our sun, including what the sun is like inside and how it influences the seasons here on Earth. Weather permitting, we’ll also be joined by Macclesfield Astronomical Society to take a closer look at the sun through their special solar telescopes (remember: never look directly at the sun, or at it through a telescope).

Please note that this event has already taken place on 22/06/2019
