Stargazing evening with the Good Life Project

Friday 25th March 2022 from 18:00pm to 22:00pm

Rock Farm - Shepton Mallet
Windsor Hill, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, BA4 4JE

‘SWEDA’ (Somerset and Wessex Eating Disorder Association) and ‘The Good Life Projects’ are coming together to hold a unique (and hopefully magical) evening stargazing.

They are working closely with the Wells Astronomical Society and the Space Detectives to pull together an event like never before.

There will be some fantastic equipment on-site to take a peek at the night sky, a talk from our Space Detective and children’s activities such as ‘In the Night Sky’ and ‘Dark Sky Rangers’ will all help make the evening one to remember.

Please note that this has already taken place on 25/03/2022

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.
