Two local experts will share tips and tricks on enjoying the night sky from your back garden and beyond. They will introduce you to the astronomical highlights coming up throughout 2023, the best kit for observing and explore the techniques needed to get the most out of your observing time.

There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, and we encourage attendees to send in their questions about anything to do with Space for our experts to answer on the night. Please email your questions to Clare at [email protected].

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.
