Peterborough Astronomical Society (PAS) are holding their Star Party at Sacrewell on the 18th November 2023, 5.30-8.30pm. Don’t miss out, book your tickets online.

PAS are incredibly passionate about the night sky and will be on hand to talk to all those who attend-from beginners to experts. PAS set up their own telescopes so that visitors can look at the stars and constellations (weather permitting).

They will also create a planetarium-style talk. PAS will walk you through the sky at night, using apps and technology that is available to all and easy to use.

Please note that this has already taken place on 18/11/2023

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.
