Everyone is invited to join the members of High Legh Astronomical Society in their charming and welcoming observatory for this one of their regular Friday evening open nights.

Please note that the observatory will be open only if the weather is good and for two to three hours after dusk. The start time of these events will change throughout the course of the year with the earliest time being 8pm. If you are interested in attending we recommend you contact the Society in advance to confirm opening times and let them know you’ll be going along.

These events are free of charge and make for a great opportunity for an evening of stargazing with a friendly and enthusiastic bunch of amateur astronomers!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 30/11/2018

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.
