Tegg's Nose Country Park

If you’ve ever looked up at the starry night sky and been enthralled by what you’ve seen then join Macclesfield Astronomical Society for an evening of astronomy.

There will be talks suitable for all levels of interest, including photos of the sky and astronomical objects, with opportunity to ask questions and (if the weather is clear) to observe the sky with MaccAstro’s guidance and to see celestial objects through their telescopes.

You are welcome to bring your own binoculars or telescopes if you wish. Be prepared for dark outdoor conditions and night temperatures.

Please note that this has already taken place on 06/04/2024

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.
