- Planets – a few facts
First quarter moon setting at 22:58 from Sheffield, so it's pretty favourable as long as the weather co-operates it should be good!
Wrap up warm, bring a comfy chair and your favourite blanket.
Sunset is at 20:30, but it won't be properly dark until at least 22:00.
Join us for the International Observe the Moon Night!
Starting at 19:30 and continuing as long as we're all willing to hang around. We'll have a few telescopes set up most focused on the Moon, but maybe some on other things.
Get their a bit earlier if you want some quality pub grub!
