Star Counts at the observatory

See the Manx sky!

A national celebration of the qualities that make the Isle of Man a special place to live and work will continue over the next two nights.

The Isle of Man Astronomical Society is hosting star counts evenings at its observatory in Foxdale.

There’ll be guided tours and a chance to use telescopes and binoculars to get the best view possible of the Manx sky.


They’re being run in conjunction with Dark Skies week, part of the Year of Our Island celebrations.


The two sell-out events run from seven thirty (7.30pm).
