November Star Stories at Abriachan Forest

Friday 4th November 2022 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Abriachan Forest Trust
Abriachan, Inverness, Inverness-shire, IV3 8LB

Join the team from Abriachan Forest on November 4th for their first event of the 2022 Stargazing season – ‘Moon, Planets and Fox & Fire!’

To kick off the winter series their first event will be a Moon and Planet special with the waxing gibbous Moon, Jupiter and Saturn on display for live binocular and telescope observation guided by astronomer Stephen Mackintosh from Highland Astronomy.

If skies are poor, Stephen will instead present an indoor talk in the forest classroom on the history of lunar and planetary observing, returning to our ancestors’ earliest ideas about the Moon and Wandering Stars.

In addition, the Abriachan team will present ‘Fox and Fire’ storytelling around the campfire with refreshments provided.
Due to site and classroom capacity, booking via Eventbrite is essential.

Admission is free for under 16s with accompanying adults, but please inform Abriachan of any large booking requests.

Please note that this has already taken place on 04/11/2022

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.
