Throughout the year astronomers from Norwich Astronomical Society hold regular public open nights at their observatory in Seething. It’s a great opportunity to escape from the city lights and view the starry skies from this dark sky location. Enjoy a presentation (which vary throughout the year) by one of the experienced lecturers, a guided tour of the facility and, if the skies are clear, observing using the large telescopes. Doors open 19:30 for 20:00 start. Small entrance fee, children welcome (8+ recommended), no need to book just turn up on the night!

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.
