September Stargazing

This Saturday evening (22nd September), we return to Great Notley Country Park in Braintree for a night of stargazing  From 6pm to 9pm, we’ll have a range of telescopes set up for you to look through.

If the skies are clear you’ll be able to observe the first-quarter Moon and maybe also the planet Jupiter. There may also be the chance to see some deep-sky objects and we’ll also try to point out some constellations to you.

If you own a telescope and you need some assistance setting it up, feel free to bring it along and we’ll try to help you. We’ll also try to answer any astronomy questions you might have.

Everyone is welcome to come along and view through the telescopes. The night is free of charge, although there is a site parking fee. Details of how to find the site are on our Stargazing page here.

Please be aware that we are dependent on clear weather. If it is cloudy you obviously may not get to see anything! We will still have a couple of members on site in case you have any questions. And if it’s really tipping it down with rain we will likely call off the event – so please use common sense before setting out.
