Are you fascinated by the night sky? Would you like to spot planets and stars from the top of one of Bath’s historic buildings? Join us for live stargazing at the top of Bath Abbey’s tower with Bath Astronomers.

This space-ial evening gives you the chance to:

• Travel through history as you ascend 212 steps* up the Abbey’s medieval towers for a view across the city. Peer into the deepest, darkest space with the telescopes provided by Bath Astronomers.

• Take a different look at the planet we call home from a Planetarium on the Abbey floor.

• New for this year, you will also be treated to a private, after-hours viewing of Luke Jerram’s exhibition of Gaia.

There are multiple dates and times for this event!

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.
