This two-hour stargazing experience with telescopes will take you on a fascinating guided tour of the autumn night sky, pinpointing some of the brighter stars, familiar and unfamiliar constellations, myths and legends of the stars and much more.

There will also be an opportunity to view our Moon and the planets Saturn, Jupiter and Mars, all of which are visible on the date. Dr John Mason MBE’s ‘living planetarium’ night-time tour uses the real night sky as an outdoor star theatre.

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.
