Stargazing at Siblyback Lake

Siblyback Lake Activity Centre - Bodmin Moor
Tremar, Liskeard, PL14 6ER

Join astronomers from Caradon Observatory and the team South West Lakes Trust for an autumnal stargazing experience at Siblyback Lake.

Designated in 2017 by the International Dark Sky Association, Siblyback Lake on Bodmin Moor is an International Dark Sky Landscape, offering a fantastic opportunity to see and learn more about the magnificent Bodmin Moor Dark Skies.

This will consist of a talk and presentation indoors, followed by some outdoor stargazing if the weather permits, where we should be seeing Saturn, the main focus for the evening, as well as Neptune, the Moon and Jupiter.

*Please note this event is weather dependent, and will be moved to Saturday 30th September if conditions are more suitable.

Please note that this has already taken place on 29/09/2023

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.
