Stargazing evening at Markshall Estate

Markshall Estate
Coggleshall, Braintree, Essex, CO6 1TG

Discover the natural beauty of the night sky at Markshall Estate with the North Essex Astronomical Society.

Join us for an evening of stargazing and use astronomical equipment to view the stars, moons, and planets which light up the night sky. Learn about constellations, meteors, and more. NEAS astronomers will present talks throughout the evening and project the night sky onto an observation screen, so we can enjoy the magic of space together.

Suitable for all ages, this event is ideal for seasoned stargazers and new astronomers alike.

Complete your evening with a delicious hot meal from our Orchard Kitchen café menu. Drinks and light refreshments will be available to purchase throughout the evening. Main meals only available on pre-order with your event ticket. You’ll be able to choose your filling or special on the night.

The event will go ahead unless extreme weather is forecast. In the unlikely event of cancellation, attendees will be contacted for a refund or option to postpone.

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.
