Join the team from SpaceExe for this their third annual conference at Exeter University. As always the conference is open both to the general public and students.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about the current research being done in astronomy, including leading figures from the University of Exeter, Met Office and Heidelberg University. We will also be hosting stalls from various institutions such as the Institute of Physics and First Light Optics (along with others!), demonstrating some of the wonderful astronomy and space science related things going on in the South West.

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.
