Nottingham Astronomical Society hosts regular practical astronomy sessions on the third Thursday of each month at Burnside Hall in Plumtree.

Weather permitting, telescopes will be set up for observing — if you have your own, then take it along! If the weather is poor, the event remains a social evening with workshops inside the hall.

Everyone is welcome, and there is no need to book, however, we recommend contacting the Society to let them know you plan to attend.

Please note that this has already taken place on 20/06/2024

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.
