Social evening at the Isle of Man Observatory

Social evening at the Isle of Man Observatory

Friday 15th July 2022 from 19:45pm to 22:00pm

Isle Of Man Observatory
Higher Foxdale, Foxdale, Isle of Man, IM4 3HB

You are welcome to join the friendly astronomers from the Isle of Man Astronomical Society at their fantastic Isle of Man Observatory. The group opens their observatory on the third Friday of every month for an informal gathering that includes observing using their telescopes if the weather permits. A small fee payable at the door (£4.00 for adults, £2.00 for children) helps them cover their costs.

These sessions are a great way to meet local astronomers and learn more about their Society, observatory and stargazing activities. The Society hosts custom tours of the observatory, too, with observing using their telescopes if the skies are clear — please get in touch with them directly with all enquiries.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 15/07/2022

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.
