On the fourth Friday of each month from August to May, astronomers from the Reading Astronomical Society hold an astronomy outreach session at Swallowfield Parish Hall. These sessions are ideal for beginners and suitable for all ages.

Stargazing outside the hall using telescopes is a priority should weather permit. You’re welcome to take along your telescope if you have one for expert advice. All ages can attend; younger ones are welcome to join the stargazing sessions.

Sessions also include a talk on an astronomical topic ideal for novices, indoor demonstrations and what is visible in the night sky.

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.
