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
