The Sky at Night stargazing at Aberdeen Science Centre

Friday 27th January 2023 from 18:00pm to 21:00pm

Aberdeen Science Centre
107 George Street, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, AB25 1HU

Aberdeen Science Centre is teaming up with the Aberdeen Astronomical Society to show you the wonders of space!

On Friday 27th January, from 6-9 pm, you can explore the centre after dark with astronomers who will explain what it takes to become a proper stargazer!

In our interactive telescope show, you’ll learn about the most powerful telescopes ever used and be able to explore the night sky using data from the most giant image of the universe. Weather permitting, we will even look through real telescopes to observe the night sky in our garden!

Feel free to bring your telescopes or binoculars if we have a lovely clear sky to do some real stargazing!

Please note that this has already taken place on 27/01/2023

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.
