Join the team from Highland Astronomy Tours for an evening of dark sky observing and stargazing with astronomer Stephen Mackintosh. This will be the last dark sky observing session of this season. In the event of poor weather Stephen will instead present an indoor talk on Galaxies and the Large Scale Universe. We’ll also have campfire storytelling from our resident storyteller and forest ranger Clelland McCallum. Family friendly and all ages welcome.

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.
