Everyone is welcome to join the Border Astronomical Society members for this one of their regular informal, friendly meetings at the Trinity School Observatory in Carlisle.

These meetings occur on the second and fourth Thursday of each month from September through April.  We recommend popping along for a chat and using their large aperture 16″ reflecting telescope to view the Moon and planets.

Attending is free of charge and there’s no need to book; you are welcome to turn up on the night!

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.
