Observing evening with St Neots Astronomy Association

Observing evening with St Neots Astronomy Association

Monday 4th October 2021 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Paxton Pits Nature Reserve
High Street, Little Paxton, PE19 6ET

Everyone is invited to join the St Neots Astronomy Association members for this one of their regular monthly observing sessions at Paxton Pits Nature Reserve.

A typical observing evening will last 1-2 hours and includes a tour of the sky using a laser pen, identifying constellations and planets that may be visible, and then observing using telescopes.

If the weather is poor, an indoor presentation takes the place of outdoor activities.

This event is run by volunteers and is free of charge; donations to the Society are welcome.

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.
