Spring Stargazing at Sherwood Forest

Edwinstowe, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, NG21 9RN

Join the team from RSPB Sherwood Forest for an evening of talks, demonstrations and exhibits by the incredibly knowledgeable team from Mansfield and Sutton Astronomical Society.

While stargazing is the highlight of these events, our great British weather may let us down but rest assured that you will have a great evening whatever the weather with the help of the experienced and passionate astronomers of the MSAS team.

Not suitable for under 8’s (anyone under 18 will need to be accompanied by a paying adult).

There will be tea and coffee available free of charge during the break.

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.
