Long Compton Village Hall
Long Compton, Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire, CV36 5JS

Join the friendly and welcoming members of the Chipping Norton Amateur Astronomy Group for their regular third Monday of each month meetings.

These sessions are social evenings and often include a presentation by a guest speaker. If the weather is clear, there may be the opportunity to observe using telescopes afterwards and find out about stargazing opportunities at the group’s favoured location, the Rollright Stones ancient monument.

Please note that the location of these meetings is not always the Long Compton Village Hall and is subject to change. Please get in touch with the Chipping Norton Amateur Astronomy Group if you would like to attend this event to confirm the meeting location. Thanks!

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.
