Are you curious about astronomy and interested in hearing more? Wondered what it would be like to look at the stars with a telescope?
Join the Astrophysics Group from the University of Surrey for this one of their monthly astronomy evenings. The evening will begin with an exciting cutting edge research lecture. Then, weather permitting, this will be followed by going to our telescope on campus.
If the weather is not so good we will give you a tour of what you can see in the night sky on clearer nights. Members of our Astrophysics group will also be on hand during the evening to answer your questions.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 19/02/2020
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.
