The welcoming and dedicated students of the University of St Andrews Astronomical Society run regular open evenings at the St Andrews Observatory.

(Almost) every Thursday night, come rain or shine, the group endeavours to open their observatory for a free stargazing session. Everyone is welcome to join them for a showcase of the best that the Universe has to offer.

Whether you are a Professor of Astrophysics or you haven’t even heard of the Moon, they would love to have you visit, and we are sure you will learn something new!

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.
