Manchester Astronomical Society
Established 1903

Visitor Information

Due to redevelopment work on the North Campus, we have relocated to the Blackett Lecture Theatre, Schuster Building, on the main campus on Oxford Road.

We aim to encourage the study of astronomy for both the newcomer and the seasoned observer alike. You are welcome to attend a few society meetings as a guest. Our weekly meetings take place in the Blackett Theatre on Thursday evenings from around 19:00 until as late as people wish to stay (except Public Lecture dates, Christmas / New Year break, and the AGM in April). Any scheduled talk will start at about 19:30/20:00.

On your first visit we recommend arriving early to allow time for you to meet some of the members and find out about the Society. Visitors without University of Manchester swipe cards will need to contact us on arrival on 0777 4698467 to arrange for someone let you into the building.
