Stargazing at Heaton Park
They're a community group, free to attend and suitable for all ages - though under 16s should be accompanied by an adult.
They're a very friendly, informal group. Newcomers are always made welcome, whether complete beginners or those who already have some knowledge of astronomy.
The group hold talks and discussions on various aspects of Stargazing and when the sky is clear we go outside and use telescopes and binoculars to observe whatever planets, nebulae and other interesting celestial objects are currently on view.
They typically have at least four or five telescopes set up and encourage anyone without a telescope to have a look through on a clear night.
There is disabled access to the meeting room, viewing area and toilets. Refreshments are available.
Please note the group will not be meeting on the Thursday 28 December 2017
