Beamish Museum Stargazing Live 2018

Beamish Museum Stargazing Live 2018

Friday 26th January 2018 from 18:30pm to 21:30pm

Beamish Museum
Beamish, Washington, DH9 0RG

Join the members of Sunderland Astronomical Society for this special event being held at the wonderful location of Beamish Museum. Unfortunately the TV programme BBC Stargazing Live is not broadcast this year, however, the active astronomers of the “SAS” need no encouragement to get outside with their telescopes! The event is set to be a big celebration of astronomy in the North East with tickets available directly from the museum itself. It’s a great excuse to get out with family and friends and explore the skies above County Durham!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 26/01/2018

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.
