EYES ON THE NIGHT SKY - OCTOBER 2021

Welcome to our night sky update for October 2021. This is a great month for stargazing, as true darkness falls at around 8.45pm from the start of the month which enables keen stargazers to get started early with finding their favourite celestial objects. This guide will provide some interesting objects to study with the unaided eyes, binoculars or telescopes.

GOLWG AR WYBREN Y NOS – MIS MEDI 2021

I rai, mae’r nosweithiau tywyll yn dynodi diwedd nosweithiau hir yr haf, ond ni ddylai’r tywyllwch roi terfyn ar bobl yn mentro allan pan mae’n glir.  Mae’n amser gwych o’r flwyddyn i weld planedau, nifylau a chlystyrau o sêr gyda thelesgop, ysbienddrych neu’r llygaid noeth.

Mae mis Medi hefyd yn dynodi dechrau’r hydref. Ar yr 22ain o Fedi, fe fydd yr Haul yn croesi’r cyhydedd wybrennol o’r gogledd i’r de sydd yn syth uwchben cyhydedd y Ddaear.  Mae oriau’r dydd a’r nos yn union yr un peth ar y diwrnod hwn.  Fe’i adwaenir fel cyhydnos yr hydref.
