Haw Wood Farm are hosting an exciting Outreach Star Party. This is aimed at all budding astronomers and those who would like to spend a few nights learning about the night sky while enjoying a relaxed weekend camping.

We will have astronomy based crafts and quizzes during the day and we will be cooking a warming Chilli in the early the evening to set you up for a night under the stars! At 7pm an Introduction to the Night Sky will be led by Andrew Robertson of the Breckland Astronomical Society.

This is an ideal family adventure for young and older children to enjoy.

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.
