This is the first of what is hoped to become regular stargazing sessions from the venue. Enjoy a presentation of what can be seen in the night sky and how to find your way around the constellations. Pete will also share some of his starter tips to help you take photographs of night scenes. Prior booking required please contact event venue for more details.

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.
