Isle of Man Astronomical Society meeting

Isle of Man Astronomical Society meeting

Thursday 6th June 2024 from 19:45pm to 21:30pm

James Martin Observatory - Isle Of Man
Higher Foxdale, Foxdale, Isle of Man, IM4 3HB

The Isle of Man Astronomical Society hosts their monthly general meeting on the first Thursday of every month at their observatory. These meetings are formal and include a 45-minute presentation and a refreshment break. If the weather permits and time allows, it may be possible to view the skies through their observatory telescope after the meeting.

Everyone is welcome, from beginners to experts! If you are interested in exploring the dark skies above the Isle of Man, you are welcome to attend a couple of meetings before being asked to join their group. A non-member charge of £4.00 (£2.00 for children) is payable per visit.

These sessions are a great way to meet local astronomers and learn more about their Society, observatory and stargazing activities. The Society hosts custom tours of the observatory, too, with observing using their telescopes if the skies are clear — please get in touch with them directly with all enquiries.

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.
