Eric Tomney Memorial Observatory Launch Celebrations

Saturday 30th September 2023 from 12:00pm to 22:00pm

Eric Tomney Memorial Observatory
Mugdock Country Park, Milngavie, Lanarkshire, G62 8EL

Everyone is invited to join the friendly astronomers of The Astronomical Society of Glasgow for the opening event of their brand-new observatory. Open from midday until late; there will be talks and presentations, stargazing and sun-gazing with telescopes and many family-friendly activities.

When adding this event to Go Stargazing, it’s unclear whether booking is required to attend this event. No booking is likely needed; however, we will update this page when we find out. In the meantime, we recommend contacting Mugdock Country Park or The Astronomical Society of Glasgow for details.

Go Stargazing would like to wish the Society and their future guests many nights of stargazing and clear skies!

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.
