Everyone is welcome to join the friendly members of the Mexborough & Swinton Astronomical Society at their regular Thursday evening gatherings in their meeting room at the Swinton Bottom Club.

The Society’s weekly programme consists of lectures and talks from a wide range of visiting speakers and members and training where more experienced observers pass on their skills to new ones.

These sessions are a great way to meet local astronomers, get help and advice on equipment and learn about the group’s practical observing sessions and observatory.

Note: these sessions are also accessible remotely via Zoom — please get in touch with the Society for more details.

Please note that this has already taken place on 27/06/2024

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.
