The University of Manchester Astronomy Society is a safe space where people can enjoy and appreciate the wonders of the universe and welcome students of any university. We collaborate with several societies on different events and organise weekly activities for our members. All are free to join us on this adventure as we battle the weather gods and do space stuff.
Macclesfield Astronomical Society (MaccAstro) are the astronomy group local to Jodrell Bank. We will be interacting with the festival visitors about the universe, space exploration, and what you can see in the sky, and if weather conditions permit we will enable you to safely look at the sun in detail with special solar telescopes. We will have information available and some spectacular images of the sky taken by our group members, and will be able to explain to visitors how to start observing the sky if they are interested.
