North Essex Astronomical Society meeting

Wednesday 17th April 2024 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

Henry Dixon Hall
Rivenhall, Witham, Essex, CM8 3HR

Join the friendly North Essex Astronomical Society members for this monthly lecture meeting on the third Wednesday of each month (except for the first Wednesday in December and no meeting in August). Anyone is welcome, beginner or expert.

The lectures are suitable for older children and adults. Younger children are welcome but may find the Society’s regular star gazing events at Great Notley Country Park more interesting!

These sessions are also a fantastic way to learn about the Society and its regular members-only club nights at their observatory.

Doors open at 19:30 for a 20:00 start; a small fee is payable at the door, with under 16’s free.

Please note that this has already taken place on 17/04/2024

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.
