We’ll be going in search of the wonders of the solar system and top of the list is Saturn.  We’ll use powerful telescopes to glimpse the rings of this amazing icy world and we’ll also look to the east to see the Moon and Jupiter rising.

Early on the sky is going to look pretty starry too so we’ll introduce you to fabulous Autumn constellations.

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.
