Please note: The Milky Way is best seen during new Moon or when it’s a thin crescent. Close to full Moon the bright light can wash out the Milky Way and fainter stars. During these times Stephen will host an evening concentrating on bright constellations and Moon observing with telescope and binoculars. Please refer to the following Moon Calendar to check Moon phases during the month of your visit.
