Thursday 14th December 2023 from 20:00pm to 23:00pm

Bagworth Working Men's Club

Weather permitting, the Leicester Astronomical Society, in collaboration with the Bagworth Stargazers, is holding a Geminid meteor watch in the extension car park of the Bagworth Working Men’s Club. Wrap up warm and join them to see how many shooting stars (meteors) you can spot. If you’ve got a camera capable of long exposures and a tripod, bring that along, too, and you might be able to catch a shooting star.

Please note that this has already taken place on 14/12/2023

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.
