Mid-Kent Astronomical Society Meeting - Sprites, Elves and Gnomes

Mid-Kent Astronomical Society Meeting - Sprites, Elves and Gnomes

Friday 29th July 2022 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

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

Join the Mid-Kent Astronomical Society for a talk by Professor David Rees – Sprites, Elves and Gnomes.

At some point, we have all been amazed at the impressive audible and visual spectacle of a powerful thunderstorm. Blinded by the overwhelming visual spectacle, we are unaware of the powerful processes in the Earth’s upper atmosphere unleashed by these storms called “Transient Luminous Events”. The talk will describe the many fascinating discoveries of the past 30 years

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.
