Weekly Observing at Leighton Observatory

Wednesday 23rd September 2020 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Leighton Observatory

Pex Hill Visitors Centre, Widnes, WA8 5QW


Join the enthusiastic astronomers from Liverpool Astronomical Society for this one of their regular weekly observing sessions at their fantastic Leighton Observatory at Pex Hill.

It's a great opportunity to have a look through their telescopes whilst chatting all things astronomical... If the weather is poor some informal indoor activities will take place instead, if you have your own telescope feel free to take it along!

This makes for a great evening out and one that is suitable for families too (children must be accompanied)... All members of the public are welcome, if you attend regularly expect to be invited to join their Society!

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
