Despite it’s proximity to central London Regent’s Park makes for a good stargazing spot away from the worst of the city lights. Light pollution of course spoils the view however the open space affords views of the brighter stars, planets, moon and even some galaxies and nebulae. As such this location is used for public stargazing sessions organised by the Baker Street Irregular Astronomers. Stargazing from central London!? Who’d have thought it?
