Old Brickyard Star Club (special guest speaker Dr Julian Onions)

Friday 29th November 2019 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

Old Brickyard Tea Garden
Eastwell Road, Scalford, LE14 4ST

Everyone is invited to come along to the Old Brickyard Star Club for this one of their regular monthly meetings which take place on the last Friday of each month from September through to May.

This month’s meeting has been brought forward a week so to accommodate the amazing Dr Julian Onions who will be the guest speaker for this event.

“Julian has always had an interest in astronomy over many years, but decided to take it further by studying for a doctorate in astrophysics at Nottingham University. There he studies computer models of galaxy formation using some of the biggest computers in the world, and builds model universes using mostly dark matter. He is also a keen amateur
taking photographs of various astronomical objects, but is brought back to earth by his department colleagues who get to use some of the biggest telescopes yet built with tracking to die for.”

The location itself is a perfect escape from the bright city lights — being away from light pollution the Milky Way can be seen arching across the skies (when there’s no moon). Take your own telescope if you have one. What’s more there will be tea and cake! A stargazer’s heaven and a great way of getting out for an evening under the stars!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 29/11/2019

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.
