Opening: Friday, 17th November

Included in the price of entry to Jodrell Bank Centre for Engagement

Dr Anthony Holloway, Head of Computing at Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics and Jodrell Bank Observatory has been photographing and studying the night sky for over 30 years as an amateur and professional astronomer. His work has been published in the press and on TV and he holds the “Artiste, International Federation of Photographic Art” distinction.

“The advent of digital photography has opened up more views of the night sky and here I showcase a collection of ‘Visions of the Night Sky’. Using a camera, lenses and sometimes a telescope to reveal transitory, unique moments in the night sky, along with deeper views into our galaxy and beyond.”

From distant galaxies and nebulae to our very own corner of Cheshire, this exhibition will take you on a journey through space in stunning detail – all included in the price of entry!

In the New Year, Anthony will be leading our “Introduction to  Astrophotography” workshops, a combination of a talk and practical session, where you could learn to take images like these.
