Kernow Astronomers Practical Night

Thursday 5th October 2017 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

St. Columb Major Academy
Newquay Road, St. Columb Major, TR9 6RW

Throughout the winter months the Kernow Astronomers meet at St Columb Major Academy for a practical observing night on the first Thursday of each month. If conditions allow they’ll be outside in the rear playground which being away from lights makes an excellent dark site for stargazing. New-members are always welcome!

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.
