2023 Autumn Galloway Star Camp


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

As usual I am announcing the dates as soon as practical so that people who need to give employers very early dates for holidays can do so.

So once again I have the pleasure of announcing the dates for :-

Scotland's Premier Star Camp during the Autumn of 2023  (November).

The Star Camp will be held at Drumroamin Camp Site as usual.

(1 South Balfern, Kirkinner, Newton Stewart, Dumfries and Galloway,DG8 9DB.)

Between the Friday 10th and Thursday the 16th November 2023.

(The New Moon is on Monday the 13th November)

These dates still and will always contain a weekend so hopefully most can attend if at work during the week days.

Moon Phases for November 2023,

Target:    13/11/2023 09:28:45
Phase Name:    New Moon
Percent of Full:    0%
Age:    100% (0 days 0 hrs 0 mins)
Azimuth:      144° 29' 44"
Altitude:      8° 30' 36"

Rise:    08:00 at 126°
Set:    15:56 at 231

Next New:    12/12/2023 23:33  [29.6 days]
Next FQ:    20/11/2023 10:51  [7.1 days]
Next Full:    27/11/2023 09:17  [14 days]
Next LQ:    5/12/2023 05:50  [21.8 days]


Again the important detail here is the time that the Moon sets and rises.

This means that observers and imagers are still able to view/image some days before

and after the New Moon without moonlight pollution affecting them.

As always those wishing to attend a day or so early and/or stay longer can request this with Lesley at the time of booking!

Hope to see you all there.

Best wishes
