Night time safari and stargazing

Night time safari and stargazing

Saturday 9th March 2024 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

St Fillans Golf Club
South Loch Earn Road, St Fillans, Perthshire, PH6 2NJ, Scotland

Explore St Fillans Golf Course at night and discover what wildlife is lurking in the shadows using night-vision equipment (thermal imaging and infrared). We have a good chance of hearing or seeing long-eared owl, barn owl, deer, pine marten, hedgehog and stoat.

If the sky is clear we will also use our binoculars and telescopes to experience the winter constellations and maybe even make a wish on a shooting star.

We will meet up in the Golf Course car park at 8pm. Bring a torch if you have one and wrap up warm. We’ll provide the special hot chocolate.

Kids go free!

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.
