Leighton Observatory - Pex Hill

The Liverpool Astronomical Society run a monthly Young Astronomers Club at their Leighton Observatory in Pex Hill.

The club meets monthly between October and March to observe through telescopes, take astrophotos of various objects in the night sky, and have interesting talks and astronomy-related activities. These sessions usually occur on the third Thursday of each month; however, they are subject to change.

The club is aimed at 10 to 16-year-olds, but all youngsters are welcome! We recommend taking warm clothing as you may be outside! Drinks and refreshments included.

A parent or responsible adult must accompany youngsters. The cost is a voluntary donation of a few pounds; those aged 14-17 can choose to become Junior Members of the Society.

Please note that this has already taken place on 14/12/2023

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.
