Event description

Description


Learn more about the night sky above Burgess Park.

The evening will begin with a short talk inside Chumleigh Gardens, followed by practical observations and stargazing. This is a beginner’s guide to the night sky.

On the 28 September, with a clear night sky, we should be able to see Saturn and the Summer Triangle. Please bring binoculars if you have them. We will climb the slope in Burgess Park (rear children’s playground) for the stargazing please wear suitable shoes.

The event is organised by FOBP and we have invited Dr Martin Heath to lead the event.

Dr Heath and his co-worker Dr Laurance Doyle of the SETI Institute collaborate through the Ecospheres Project to investigate what combinations of stars and planets are most friendly for complex life. https://ecospheresproject.org/

The ticket is £5.00 plus 90p Eventbrite booking fee. Total £5.90.

The £5.00 ticket fee is refundable upon attendance or make this a donation to FOBP so that we can hold further events for park users and people interested in Burgess Park.

Into the Night – The darkness of night is essential for our wildlife and equally important for people. Through “Into the Night” Friends of Burgess Park is exploring the night time. We are holding events about bats, talks about the stars and films about space. In London we have a lot of electric light all the time which means we never really experience real darkness. “Into the Night” will invite people to come into Burgess Park and find out more about the park at night time.
