Solargazing and planetarium show at Abbey Tower

Friday 11th August 2023 from 17:45pm to 20:00pm

Bath Abbey
Cheap Street, Bath, Avon, BA1 1LT

The Bath Astronomers, working in collaboration with Bath Abbey, will offer incredible views of the Sun at the top of the abbey tower and planetarium sessions on ground level.

Subject to clear skies, you’ll be guided on safely observing the Sun and get to look through high-quality telescopes. If solar gazing is impossible due to the weather, the focus will be on the tower and the bells!

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.
