On the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 10, the National Space Centre is joined by some very special guests to celebrate the unsung heroes of the Apollo space programme.

Manfred “Dutch” von Ehrenfried, Gerry Griffin, Sy Liebergot and some secret Skype guests will host an Apollo themed dinner, based on the menu enjoyed by the Apollo 10 crew on route to the Moon.

This will be followed by a Q&A session, prior to a screening of Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
