Introduction to Astronomy - SHU Gazing Live!

Friday 6th March 2020 from 18:00pm to 20:00pm

Norfolk Arms - Sheffield
2 Ringinglow Road, Sheffield, S11 7TS

Join Sheffield Hallam University and the Sheffield Astronomical Society for an evening of science and stargazing at one of Sheffield’s most picturesque pubs.

The launch event for Sheffield Hallam’s Science Week programme, the evening will see academics from the University’s Physics and Engineering departments deliver a talk on the science behind the stars, followed by a chance to stargaze yourself alongside experts from the Sheffield Astronomical Society, so wrap up warm!

The event is suitable for all ages, with food and refreshments available to purchase throughout. Like everything in Sheffield, the stargazing is weather dependent, but there are worse places to be stuck indoors than the Norfolk Arms.

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.
