The Demon Star at Tomintoul

Friday 14th February 2020 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

Richmond Memorial Hall - Tomintoul
Tomintoul, Ballindalloch, AB37 9ET

Eclipses don’t happen very often, unless you are looking at the Demon Star. Join us to find out why some stars change brightness on a regular basis. Tabby’s star is even more intriguing. Some scientists think that it may be dimming because of an alien megastructure.

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.
