Saturday 9th November come and join the team from the Parks Trust for a night under the stars with the award winning UK Astronomy!

Starting with an hours interactive presentation from founder Ross Hockham BCAe taking you on a journey through the solar system. Featuring inflatable Sun and planets, you will find out some fun facts about each and how you can see them from your gardens at home.

A break for hot drinks and biscuits will then be followed by stargazing if clear.

With UK Astronomy’s mobile observatory, a VW ‘Space’ crafter van packed with telescopes, binoculars and gear for you to get hands on searching the sky for and seeing some of the awesome sights that our universe has to offer.

If cloudy or raining there will be scopes and gear for you to view plus another 30-40min talk where we turn the lights off and show you what you can see with your eyes, binoculars and finally telescopes. From Globular clusters to Nebulae to Galaxies there is something for everyone to enjoy and inspire you to go out and look up in wonder.

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.
