Barry Astronomical Society meetings are friendly, informal and relaxed. The group aims to bring a grassroots understanding of astronomy and the beautiful night sky to anyone interested.

Meetings include a beginner’s friendly talk given by a guest speaker on all aspects of astronomy. It’s also a great way to learn about the group’s other activities, including observing sessions at local dark sites.

Note that some of these meetings take place only on Zoom. Please check with the Society to confirm.

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.
