Bredhurst Village Hall
Hurstwood Road, Bredhurst, Kent, ME7 3JZ

Join the friendly and welcoming members of the Mid-Kent Astronomical Society for this regular meeting at Bredhurst Village Hall.

These sessions are open to non-members. All ages and levels of expertise are welcome, including complete beginners. There is a small entrance fee for each meeting to cover costs for tea and coffee.

Tonight, the Society will be hosting Prof David Southwood CBE and his presentation The Trials, Tribulations and Triumphs of Mars Exploration.

Following the presentation, there will be a chance to talk with other MKAS members and then an observing session in the field behind the hall (weather permitting) and a telescope workshop in the hall, so if you have problems with your telescope, bring it along!

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.
