Beginner's Astronomy at Beacon Hill Observatory

Beginner's Astronomy at Beacon Hill Observatory

Friday 10th May 2024 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

Beacon Hill Observatory
Montgomery Road, Cleethorpes, South Humberside, DN35

Join the friendly astronomers from the Cleethorpes & District Astronomical Society for this beginner’s session at their Beacon Hill Observatory.

These sessions occur from September to June on the second or third Friday of each month. They include a presentation on two astronomical topics plus a look at what is visible in the night sky.

If the skies are clear, the session turns into a practical stargazing session observing using telescopes. So take your telescope if you have one for some expert help. Hot drinks and biscuits will also be available.

Each beginner’s session is suitable for novices and those with little prior knowledge of astronomy. Children are welcome as long as an adult accompanies them.

Please note that this has already taken place on 10/05/2024

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.
