JSL Observatory Public Observing Session

JSL Observatory Public Observing Session

Friday 8th February 2019 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

Jim Savage-Lowden Observatory
Culloden Battlefield, Culloden Moor, IV2 5EU

On several Fridays each month throughout the winter season members from Highlands Astronomical Society open the doors to their Jim Savage-Lowden Observatory to the public for observing sessions.

Note that this schedule of opening is based on the lunar calendar — the observatory is only open when there is no moon in the sky and the skies are dark — therefore it may not actually be open on this particular date!

Please check the Highlands Astronomical Society’s website homepage to confirm that this event is taking place as these events are also weather dependent.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 08/02/2019

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.
