New Moon

7th Sep 2021

A new moon on 7 September is one of the best times to go stargazing.

During a new moon, the Moon is not visible in the sky so can’t wash out the light from fainter stars. Without the light of the Moon, you’ll be able to see thousands of stars and even the Milky Way with just your naked eye.  This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere.
