Sacrewell Star Party November 2022

Sacrewell Star Party November 2022

Saturday 19th November 2022 from 17:30pm to 21:15pm

Sacrewell Heritage Farm
Thornhaugh, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, PE8 6HJ, East of England

Join the astronomers from the Peterborough Astronomical Society who will bring along their telescopes and set them up in the field near the barn so that visitors can look at stars and constellations (weather permitting).

There will be a programme of talks and displays throughout the evening. We want people to go away inspired by what they see and learn at the Star Party and try to make it as accessible as we can-whether it’s using an app to identify a star or a constellation or advice on how to buy your first telescope.

Doors open at 17.30 and the event finishes at 21.15 (last entry at 20:00).

Entry costs £6 per adult, and children under 16 can visit for free. Hot drinks and snacks will be available to buy in the cafe.

Please note that this has already taken place on 19/11/2022

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.
