Please email them to let them know if you plan to attend and the make and model of your telescope if you are bringing one along.
The event is free of charge, though donations to the Society are welcome. If the skies are clear, they will open up the observatory afterwards. Refreshments will also be available.

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.
