Stars over the Botanics

Tuesday 7th February 2017 from 19:15pm to 21:00pm

Glasgow Botanic Gardens
730 Great Western Road, Glasgow, G12 0UE

This event organised by The Astronomical Society of Glasgow and hosted at the Glasgow Botanic Gardens offers a fantastic opportunity for members of the public to escape from the brightest of the city lights and go stargazing!

Members of the society will have telescopes on hand and will be keen to show you some of the wonders of the night sky including the Moon, planets or even deep sky objects bright enough to be visible through the light pollution!

Astronomy presentations or talks will be given in the nearby Kibble Palace if the weather happens to be unfavourable.

These events are limited to the first 40 people with doors opening at 19:15 ready for 19:30 start. They are always well attended so arrive early! Adults £4 Children £2.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 07/02/2017

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.
