Chambers Farm Wood - Forestry Commission
Education Barn - Chambers Farm Wood, Market Rasen, LN8 5JR

Make an early start to the new observing season with this solar system session devoted to Saturn and Jupiter! These lovely targets will be in the night time sky above the stunning 900 acre woodland as night falls and we’ll break out the big telescopes to give you unforgettable views.

Expect to see the rings of Saturn and moons and atmosphere of Jove! As the night gets darker we’ll also keep eyes peeled for shooting stars and we may even get a glimpse of the Milky Way. But we’ll start with a colourful beginner’s talk in the education barn to set the scene. Event goes ahead in all weather. We’ll also supply you with hot refreshments, juice and cake.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 24/08/2019

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.
