Observe the Waxing Gibbous Moon

Observe the Waxing Gibbous Moon

Friday 8th July 2022 from 20:30pm to 22:00pm

Ramsgate Royal Esplanade
Westcliff Promenade, Ramsgate, Kent, CT11 0HE

Join Tom and Paul from the Monkton Stargazers who will bring their super amazing telescopes to the Royal Esplanade to observe the waxing crescent moon. Also, there will be a Moon quiz with the chance to win a free drink from the Boating Pool bar. Around the world, people will be celebrating ‘On the Moon again’ which is an idea inspired by French scientists. () It was 50 years ago in December that the last human walked on the Moon but we hope that in the next few years humans will walk on the Moon again.

Please note that this has already taken place on 08/07/2022

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.
