Public Skywatch with Thurrock Astronomy Society

Friday 21st February 2020 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Horndon-on-the-Hill Methodist Hall
High Road, Horndon-on-the-Hill, SS17 8LQ

Members of the public are invited to join Thurrock Astronomy Society for an evening of stargazing.  Note that these events are very much weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear — also note that the event may not be held at the Methodist Hall but instead another location nearby.  The event start time is also subject to change. The date of this event has been chosen to coincide with a new Moon so that the skies are at their darkest.

If you would like to attend please contact the event organiser at least 24 hours before who will then update you as to whether the event is going ahead, at what time and where!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 21/02/2020

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.
