The Herschel Museum of Astronomy is opening its doors and the garden on Monday 21st June 2021 to do a bit of sun watching with visitors to the Museum. Not a bad thing to do on the Summer Solstice!

The opportunity is open to booked bubbles to have dedicated access to the Museum and the Bath Astronomers observing team in the garden who’ll show you your closest star and tell you all about it and the things you can see on it (using the right safety gear). Each session is an hour in duration. Prior booking required.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 21/06/2021

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.
