Cranfield Astronomical Society - Geology of the rocky planets

Tuesday 5th December 2023 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

Loxham Observatory
Duncan Road, Cranfield, Bedfordshire, MK43 0TH, East of England

The Cranfield Astronomical Society meet weekly every Tuesday during term time on the Cranfield University Campus.

Observing from their Loxham Observatory is the main priority for these sessions; if the weather is inclement, the group gathers in the nearby Cranfield Student Association lounge.

This session will focus on “The geology of the rocky planets – a look at the structure of Mercury, Venus and Mars compared to Earth.”

Meetings are attended mainly by Cranfield University students and staff; however, persons not related to the University are very welcome as associate members. Please get in touch with the Society if you would like to go along.

Please note that this has already taken place on 05/12/2023

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.
