This is an evening for those of you who have always wondered what’s out there.

An opportunity to ask all those questions;

“What is a star?”

“Why is Pluto no longer a planet?”

“What are we doing to find life elsewhere?”

Learn about our solar system, our local neighbourhood, and we will even discuss distant galaxies and the far reaches of the universe.

 

Please be aware, when observing is possible, temperatures can be severe and the ground underfoot can be soft and wet, to ensure your own comfort, please wear suitable attire.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 24/01/2021

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.
