Keele Observatory Public Open Evening

Tuesday 20th April 2021 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

Keele Observatory
Keele University, Stoke-on-Trent, ST5 5BG

The Keele Observatory at Keele University is open to the public every Tuesday evening. If the weather permits there will be observing through their large 31cm aperture refracting telescope. If not the observatory will still be open for a short guided tour and a chat!

Note that from April through to September the skies do not darken until mid/late evening however solar observing is possible if our closest star is visible in the sky. Take along your own telescope if you need a hand with it (contact the observatory first to let them know).

These events are completely free of charge!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 20/04/2021

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.
