Star gazer?

                                                 Are you interested in Astronomy? 

Macclesfield Astronomical Society (MAS) and the British Astronomical Association (BAA) will be presenting a full-day of talks and practical sessions to help encourage members of the community to learn more about the wonders of the stars and planets. Their aim is to help budding astronomers learn basic techniques and develop their interest in this fascinating hobby to its full potential.

The full day of talks and workshops will cover diverse subjects such as choosing the right
telescope and which books to buy, through to observing the Moon, and the amazing planets
Jupiter and Saturn. They will also have experts on hand to answer all your questions, and a range of retailers present so you can see telescopes and equipment at first-hand.

Saturday, March 5  Macclesfield Town Hall
