Astronomy Evening at Xplore Science Discovery Centre

Astronomy Evening at Xplore Science Discovery Centre

Friday 18th February 2022 from 18:15pm to 20:30pm

Xplore! Science Discovery Centre
17 Henblas Street, Wrexham, Clwyd, LL13 8AE

Join the friendly team at the Xplore Science Discover Centre for an evening of astronomy! This time around they will be looking at orbits!

Space is full of things that go around each other, the moon around the earth, the earth around the sun and the sun as it moves around the supermassive black hole in the centre of the galaxy. But why do objects move as they do, what are the different orbits called and what on earth is a Lagrange point.

Join them to explore the world of moving objects!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 18/02/2022

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.
