Join members of South East Kent Astronomical Society for this one of their regular public stargazing events that take place on the first Friday of each month from October through to March. Away from the worst of the light pollution the city of Canterbury offers this is a good spot for stargazing and observing through members telescopes — why not bring your own along if you have one? This event will take place no matter the weather with presentations and talks on astronomical subjects offered as plan-B.

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.
