Chesterfield Barnett Observatory - All Welcome!

Friday 13th December 2019 from 20:00pm to 23:00pm

Chesterfield Barnett Observatory
Hastings Close, Chesterfield, S41 8RH, East Midlands

Everyone is welcome to join the friendly and enthusiastic members of Chesterfield Astronomical Society at this one of their weekly Friday night observatory open evenings! There is no need to book for this casual stargazing session — just pop in if the weather looks good. A small donation of £2 is asked for to help maintain the observatory. Please bear in mind that these Friday night events are also member nights so although visitors will be very welcome some astronomers will also be focussing on their hobby!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 13/12/2019

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.
