Stargazing at Bentham

Stargazing at Bentham

Saturday 30th November 2019 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

Bentham Golf Club
Robin Lane, Bentham, LA2 7AG

Experienced astronomer Robert Ince will guide you on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky, while showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself. There will be powerful telescopes for you to gaze through, all operated by a local astronomer, who will attempt to answer any questions on life, the universe and anything in between!

Robert will tell you more about our Dark Skies and show you some of his breathtaking imagery and videos of the objects we hope to see when we go outside, weather permitting. If the weather doesn’t cooperate we’ll still have colourful talks, videos and telescope demonstrations, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.

Suitable for children aged over 8 years. Please book early as places are limited. Groups and clubs are welcome.

Make sure you wrap up warm, bring binoculars if you have them and also a torch.

Tea & Coffee, hot chocolate with marshmallows and other refreshments will be available to purchase on the night to keep you toasty.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 30/11/2019

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.
