Join astronomer Richard Darn, search for famous spring constellations, and use telescopes to view distant galaxies and star clusters at the Star Hub at Sutton Bank National Park Centre in the North York Moors. The moon is absent; the stars will be glittering given clear weather. You’ll also enjoy an interactive planetarium tour inside the warm Hub and get the chance to handle space rocks.

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.
