Lynmouth National Park Centre

Popular astronomer Seb Jay will discuss astronomy and the Exmoor Dark Sky Reserve. Seb’s talks will leave you wholly fascinated by the sheer enormity of the universe and the wonders that can be seen with the naked eye and telescope. We will finish outside with a look through the telescopes if the night is clear. Tea and coffee are available, and the centre will be open to browsing.

This event takes place as part of Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2022.

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.
