Everyone interested in astronomy is welcome to join the friendly Wythenshawe Stargazers for this one of their weekly Thursday night meetings at the Johannesberg Gardens Community Centre.

If the skies are clear the event takes place outside with a practical stargazing session (there’s free tea and coffee to help keep you warm!).

If the weather is poor the activities move indoors with a beginners-level astronomy talk or telescope workshop. These events are ideal for novices and are free! Please contact the group to arrange your attendance.

Please note that this has already taken place on 07/02/2024

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.
