Join the North Essex Astronomical Society astronomers who will have their telescopes set up for observing this evening as long as the weather allows!

Learn how to recognise the constellations. Bring your own telescope along for expert help. If the weather is partially clear, the group will still answer questions and chat whilst waiting for a break in the clouds.

In the event of rain or severe weather the group may cancel the event. Check the group’s Facebook or Twitter page on the day of the event for updates, or call Great Notley Park on 0333 0132900.

The event is free, and no prior booking is required; however, parking charges apply.

Please note that this has already taken place on 08/04/2023

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.
