Young Astronomers Club is the perfect introduction for the budding astronomer!

Run by a friendly team of astronomers from North Essex Astronomical Society, you’ll learn about the night sky, how to use telescopes and take part in other great fun activities. On clear nights you will be able to look through their telescopes.

The club runs on the second Tuesday of each month at Southview School in Witham and is split into two age groups as follows:

Primary school age: 7 – 11 years from 6.15 pm to 7.10 pm
Secondary school age: 11 – 17 years from 7.15 pm to 8:15 pm

Each session costs £4 per child and includes a squash drink. Tea and coffee are available for adults for a small donation. Parents are required to stay and encouraged to join in.

If space allows, our coordinator may accommodate children outside the age range. Please get in touch with the Society to ask.

Prior booking is essential!

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.
