Introduction to Stargazing - talks and telescopes

Friday 8th February 2019 from 19:00pm to 21:30pm

Attingham Park
Attingham, Atcham, SY4 4TP

Settle in with a glass of wine as the Shropshire Astronomical Society (SAS) introduce you to the fascinating world of the night sky with short talks suitable for the novice or practicing astronomer. If the weather is suitable we’ll finish the evening with time in front of a telescope along with experienced star-watchers from the SAS pointing out the highlights of the night sky (If the weather is inclement the stars will come to us through the power of computer technology.)

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.
