Nowton Park Star Party

Nowton Park Star Party


The Apex Box Office


Nowton Road,
Bury St Edmunds,


Join members of the Athenaeum Astronomy Association who will introduce specific aspects of the night sky in March.

The moon will be full on 21 March and waning thereafter. It will rise at about 8.15pm on 22 March and at around 9.30pm on 23 March. Given clear skies we should be able to observe star clusters and Nebulae early in the evening and later, the Moon.

Running parallel to observing will be a series of presentations on Astronomy, some fun activities for children and the opportunity to talk to AAA members about all things astronomical.

We’ll be situated in the heart of Nowton Park, well away from light sources to maximise our chance of viewing.

Parking is available in the main car park at Nowton Park - please walk up to the walled garden and bring a torch!

Refreshments will be on sale.

Children welcome
