Moth Night is the UK’s annual celebration of moths and moth recording. Originally launched in 1999, the date varies each year to focus recording effort on different parts of the season. Atropos founded the event and it is now run jointly with Butterfly Conservation.

Every year Moth Night has a theme, the main theme for Moth Night 2016 is Hawk-moths. Events are confined to the warmest months and each event will last for three consecutive nights (Thursday – Saturday) and the event will take place on different date periods every year. Recording can take place on any one or more of these days or nights.
