Observe Neptune and Andromeda with the Baker Street Irregular Astronomers

Wednesday 13th October 2021 from 18:30pm to 22:00pm

Primrose Hill - London
Prince Albert Road, London, London, NW1 4RY

Everyone is welcome to join Baker Street Irregular Astronomers to observe the planet Neptune and the Andromeda galaxy!

Neptune, being a fifth as bright as the faintest stars visible with the naked eye, is the only planet not visible without the aid of a telescope. On the other hand, despite being 2.5 million light-years distant, the Andromeda galaxy is big and bright enough to be seen from London’s light-polluted skies with a telescope!

The meeting is free to attend, fun and family-friendly. All who have an interest in the cosmos are welcome. If you have a small telescope or binoculars, please bring them with you. The group loves showing celestial objects to newcomers to our hobby.

This event is free of charge and does not require prior booking; however, if you are planning to attend this event, please check the group’s Facebook event for updates.

Please note that this has already taken place on 13/10/2021

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.
