Stargazing on the Hoe with Plymouth Astronomical Society

Stargazing on the Hoe with Plymouth Astronomical Society

Monday 11th October 2021 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

Drakes Statue - Plymouth Hoe
Hoe Park, Plymouth, PL1 2PJ

After a long break, the Plymouth Astronomical Society will be near Drakes Statue on the Hoe, weather permitting, on Monday 11th October to do some stargazing and observe Jupiter, Saturn and Moon and maybe maybe maybe maybe Jupiter even Venus through the Societies 8-inch scope.

As we are still in a pandemic, the group asks only people prepared to be sensible to come!

The event is weather-driven and will happen if the skies are clear.

Please check the group’s Facebook page for the latest updates.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 11/10/2021

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.
