South Cheshire Astronomical Society club meeting & observing

Monday 6th May 2024 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

St Peter's Community Hall
Middlewich Road, Crewe, Cheshire, CW1 4RD

If you are interested in astronomy, you can join the South Cheshire Astronomical Society members for their club meeting.

These sessions occur (usually) on the first Monday of each month from September to May, although the day (and sometimes venue) changes. Please check with the Society to confirm.

The main focus of these nights is to observe the night sky using a range of Society telescopes and members’ scopes. If you have binoculars or a telescope, then take them along!

When the weather is poor, the opportunity is taken to meet with other interested observers, listen to informal talks, share information and undertake virtual sky viewing.

Admission, plus refreshments of tea, coffee, fruit juice and cake, are free, but donations are gratefully received to help cover costs.

Please note that this has already taken place on 06/05/2024

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.
