If you’ve ever looked up at the starry night sky and been enthralled by what you’ve seen, 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 the 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.
Please note that this has already taken place on 14/10/2023
