10am – 4pm, Daily
Visions of the Night Sky is a new photographic exhibition which traverses the universe through the work of Dr Anthony Holloway, Jodrell Bank’s Head of Computing. Anthony brings his technical skill in photography and an eye for composition together with his professional understanding of astronomy. These qualities make him a superb astro-photographer and have resulted in the collection of breathtaking images in this exhibition.
They are as inspiring and beautiful as the scientific work of the Observatory, and Jodrell Bank Centre for Engagement is delighted to present it against the backdrop of the Lovell Telescope. No visit to Jodrell Bank is complete without a visit to this new display, and entry is included in the price of admission.
