Upcoming Astronomy Events

As a service to our community, Sky & Telescope lists astronomy-related events, including star parties, observatory public nights, astronomy talks, and more. Star parties offer dark skies and astronomical fellowship and often cater to families and feature special activities for kids. Public nights give the general public a chance to view the sky through large telescopes, and public talks are a great place to learn the fundamentals of the science and the craft.
You’ll also see online events offered here.
And if you’d like free copies of Sky & Telescope‘s Let’s Go Stargazing flyer or door prizes for your next star party, you can fill out this form.

Mid-Kent Astronomical Society - Jeremy Phillips

April 12 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm BST

$1 – $3

Shooting for the stars
Astro photographer Jeremy Phillips (FRAS) describes himself as ‘an Earthling locked in a futile battle with clouds and light pollution’. Based in south London, he must contend with a severe city sky-glow when capturing deep sky objects from his back garden. However, for a few years now, Prof David Rees and wife Wendy have generously provided Jeremy with a welcome escape route to dark skies above their home in East Sussex. The result is a series of images including nebulas, galaxies, supernovas, comets, moon shots, meteors, and the Milky Way. In this presentation, Jeremy will display all these targets, but settle in more detail on the process of taking Milky Way images, since these require DSLRs or full-frame mirrorless cameras and avoid the need for expensive equipment. With their lower costs, DSLRs make astrophotography accessible to more of us and, after all, if you buy one and discover you don’t enjoy astrophotography, you can always use it for other things instead. Jeremy will reveal techniques for successfully combining the Milky Way with landscapes and show how to bring out the hidden wonders within its structure.
