Discover the Constellations

Book Now

23 October 2018

6-8pm

Discover the beauty of the dark skies of the North Pennines. The evening will start with an introductory indoor session using an amazing software programme that allows you to view all the wonders of the night sky in real time.

Afterwards, weather permitting, we will go out and using the naked eye, binoculars and a telescope, view some of the wonders of the universe.

The activity leader, Bruce Ferguson (from Wild North Discovery), has been a keen stargazer since the early 1970s when his interest in the night sky was inspired by the gift from his dad of his first telescope, a 3-inch refractor.

Wrap up warm and bring a red-light torch (if you have one). Not suitable for young children (under 8s). This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival running from 20 October to 4 November 2018 – www.NorthPenninesStarFest.org.uk

Location: Harehope Quarry Project
