Public stargazing with Sandy Astronomical Society (third week of month)

Monday 15th January 2024 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Blunham Playing Fields
Barford Road, Blunham, Bedfordshire, MK44 3ND

Everyone is invited to join the Members of the Sandy Astronomical Society for their “observatunity” outreach events at Blunham playing fields.

It’s an ideal opportunity to chat with local astronomers and have a look through their telescopes! If you have a telescope of your own, take it along for expert help and advice!

These sessions occur from October to March on the first and third weeks of each month. Monday is the preferred date; however, depending on the weather, the session may move to Thursday.

Note that events only take place if the skies are mostly clear at this location according to the Clear Outside weather app.

These events follow COVID precautions and are run following the Government’s current guidelines.

Please note that this has already taken place on 15/01/2024

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.
