Wicken Fen - National Trust
Lode Lane, Ely, CB7 5XP
Join members of the Cambridge Astronomical Association, who will be setting up telescopes to allow public members to observe the night sky. Wicken Fen has low levels of light pollution so, if the skies are clear, they hope to provide some exciting views.
If the weather does not cooperate, the group will deliver a short talk and a planetarium show from within the visitor centre. If weather conditions are deplorable, this even might move to Monday 15th November.
For all enquiries regarding this event please contact the Wicken Fen Visitor Centre on 01353 720274 or email [email protected]
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.
