Everyone is invited to join members of Letchworth & District Astronomical Society for an informal evening of stargazing should weather permit. In addition to the main telescope housed in their observatory society members will be bringing along their own equipment with which you can observe the skies — if you have your own telescope you are welcome to bring that along too! Although the event times are specified as being from 8pm to 9pm their website does say to arrive when convenient and stay as long as you wish!

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.
