Stargazing Weekend at Redesdale Arms

Saturday 28th September 2019 from 18:15pm to 20:45pm

Redesdale Arms

The majestic Milky Way will be looking at its sublime best as the dark sky season gets underway. We’ll take a tour of the spectacular late summer sky, glimpsing stars cluster, galaxies and even shooting stars, whilst showing you how to find objects for yourself.

The weekend will include colourful talks for novices and stargazing with our resident astronomer Richard Darn. Equipment is provided. Come along for the weekend or just the evening!

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.
