Walsall Astronomical Society meeting and stargazing

Thursday 29th February 2024 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

Rushall Olympic Football Club
Dales Lane, Rushall, West Midlands, WS4 1LJ

Everyone is invited to join the welcoming members of the Walsall Astronomical Society, who meet weekly at Rushall Olympic Football Club.

Meetings are primarily informal social events, except for the first Thursday of each month, which is more formal and includes a presentation by a guest speaker.

On the last Thursday of each month, there will be a short presentation covering the latest space news and what can be seen in the night sky for the following month.

After the meeting, there will be an opportunity to stargaze and perhaps look through telescopes if the weather permits.

The session offers an opportunity for help and advice from experienced astronomers, and the group regularly hosts telescope workshops.

Please note that this has already taken place on 29/02/2024

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.
