You will learn how to find and observe some of the brighter planets this autumn and how to recognise the brighter constellations. Follow the milky way, which is best seen at this time of year and explore some of its many treasures. You will hear about some of the fascinating myths and legends of the constellations. The planetarium will be housed in a large marquee which guarantees the show will go on!

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.
