Practcial Stargazing at Wellow with Bath Astronomers

Friday 21st April 2023 from 21:00pm to 23:00pm

Wellow Public Car Park
Station Road, Wellow, Avon, BA2 8QB, South West

This members’ (and prospective members’) evening is intended to share the night sky in a convenient location. Members of Bath Astronomers run it.

It is weather dependent, so you’ll need to check that the Social Media/website has been positively updated on the day to confirm it is running.

Bring your binoculars and telescope if you have them. This is shared observing rather than guided observing, so you won’t be given a guided tour unless someone kindly volunteers their time.

Please note that this has already taken place on 21/04/2023

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.
