Stargazing at Talkin Tarn

Stargazing at Talkin Tarn

Sunday 15th March 2020 from 19:30pm to 21:00pm

Talkin Tarn Country Park
Farlam, Brampton, CA8 1HN

Discover the magic of the night skies with a stargazing experience at Talkin Tarn, a beautiful dark sky site, where you’ll learn all about the stars.

If conditions are clear, you’ll spend most of the time outdoors where you’ll be provided with a pair of astronomy binoculars, allowing you to really appreciate the awe-inspiring web of constellations above.

With the help of astronomers from Stargazing Nights, you’ll gain a greater appreciation of the night sky, including how to find key objects on your own.

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.
