Nowton Park Star Party

Nowton Park Star Party
Start Date: 23 March 2019
Start Time: 7pm
End Date: 23 March 2019
End Time: 9.30pm

Nowton Park, Bury St Edmunds

Explore the wonders of the night’s sky at Nowton Park.

Join members of the Athenaeum Astronomy Association who will introduce specific aspects of the night sky in March.

The moon will be full on 21 March and waning thereafter. It will rise at about 8.15pm on 22 March and at around 9.30pm on 23 March. Given clear skies we should be able to observe star clusters and Nebulae early in the evening and later, the Moon.

Running parallel to observing will be a series of presentations on Astronomy, some fun activities for children and the opportunity to talk to AAA members about all things astronomical.

We’ll be situated in the heart of Nowton Park, well away from light sources to maximise our chance of viewing. 

Parking is available in the main car park at Nowton Park - please walk up to the walled garden and bring a torch!

Refreshments will be on sale.

Tickets: Adult £5, Child £3. Booking essential - use the website above or call 01284 758000.
