New year stargazing at Rossall Point Tower

Friday 27th January 2023 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

Rossall Point Tower
Fleetwood, Blackpool, Lancashire, FY7 8PG

Local Astronomer Robert Ince will be your guide taking you on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself.

We will try and show some of the skies wonders through our powerful telescopes and binoculars. These are all operated by local astronomers, who will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!

We’ll tell you more about our dark skies and show startling images and videos of the objects we hope to see when we go outside, weather permitting. But even if the weather does not co-operate we’ll still have colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.

Wrap up warm – nights can be cold, bring binoculars if you have them and also a torch. Come dressed for the weather wearing warm clothing and sturdy footwear.

This event is only suitable for children aged 8+ who are able to sit and listen to a speaker. Please park at the adjacent rossall point car park .

By far the best way to make sure you find the location easily is to use the excellent (and free) “what 3 words” location service, this give 3m accuacy anywhere – the link is:

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.
