Stargazing Evening

Stargazing Evening

Saturday 29th October 2016 from 19:00pm to 23:30pm

Stackpole Outdoor Learning Centre
Old Home Farm Yard, Stackpole, SA71 5DQ

Dark Sky Wales and the National Trust Stackpole are presenting a unique opportunity for you to be part of a small group of 15 like minded individuals to enjoy the dark skies of Wales from a very special location.
On the evening you will be accompanied by two astronomers who will guide you around the night sky from constellations to nebula, learning the mythology and science of astronomy. No experience needed just an enthusiasm to learn more about the night sky and why not bring a camera or use ours to record your experience.
All astronomical equipment is provided but please wrap up warm as the area can become very cold.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 29/10/2016

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.
