Free Comet Spotting Evening 15th December 2018 - Siblyback Lake

You are invited to attend Caradon Observatory’s next free outreach event on Saturday 15th December at Siblyback Lake. It will be a purely observing evening between 7pm and 10pm so please wrap up warm and hope for a clear sky. If it’s rainy or too cloudy the event will be postponed. Caradon Observatory will post Facebook updates on the days running up to the event.

There will be a range of telescopes for visitors to look through. The main focus of the night will be the closest approach of comet 46P/Wirtanen. There is a really good chance that this comet will be visible with the naked eye from a dark site. 

A first quarter Moon will be South at the start of the evening with Mars and Neptune to the West. Orion and the Pleiades will be visible in the East. Comet 46/P Wirtanen will be just below the Pleiades.

The Rock Hopper Cafill be open for refreshments. If you would like a meal please give them a ring on 01579 343 448 to book a table.

The event is one of a series showcasing the exceptional quality of the night sky over Bodmin Moor. Conditions at the last Siblyback dark sky event were very impressive. The moor was designated as an International Dark Sky Landscape in 2017. This followed a successful bid by Cornwall Council and Caradon Observatory. For more information on Bodmin Moor’s International Dark Sky Landscape designation please see www.cornwall.gov.uk/darksky or reply to this email with any questions.
