Please consider using an alternative browser - especially if you are on Windows XP which only supports the outdated Internet Explorer 8 browser - such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome which do have support for these web standards. As well as not supporting modern features and web standards, old versions of browsers - especially Internet Explorer - can expose your computer to security risks. The Browse Happy website has a list of the latest versions of all major browsers, including Internet Explorer (but remember Windows XP only supports up to IE8!)

If updating/changing your browser is not possible, do not panic - all of the LAS website is still available to you and we are working to make the layout compatible with outdated browsers.

Sidewalk Event, Hightown: Friday, 8th February 2019

Friday, 8th February 2019 @ 19:00 - 21:00 GMT


Members of the Liverpool Astronomical Society, (founded in 1881), will display several telescopes for viewing the night sky if clear. There will also be an illustrated talk on astronomy.


Please note that car-parking is extremely limited but the venue can be reached on public transport. Hightown railway station is located 1/3rd of a mile away (approx. 5 minutes walk).

The Alt Centre itself has no postcode (the given postcode is for nearby Lower Alt Road) so to find it follow Lower Alt Road westwards (towards the coast) as far as you can.
Lower Alt Road forks at this point – to the right is a no-entry, incoming one-way road. To the left is the Alt Centre.


This event is free, and is open to all members of the public.
For more information contact:-
Mr. David Galvin, Observatory Director via contact form here
