Gisburn Forest, Near Tosside, BB7
We will be your guides along an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, showing you how to find all sorts of objects for yourself. There will be powerful telescopes for you to gaze through but we will also help you see the spectacle of the meteor shower with just your own eyes. Suitable for adults and accompanied children 12 years and over.
Did you know; from towns and cities we see just a handful of stars, but in the Forest of Bowland we could count 2,000 at any one time!
Please book early - places are limited.
- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.
- Event offers guidance and tuition on how to take night-time photographs using a camera and tripod or using a telescope in place of a camera lens.
- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
This event is being organised by Robert Ince who should be contacted if you have any queries. We highly recommend you confirm this event is indeed going ahead before travelling. If you do attend it would be fantastic if you could let the organiser know you found them via Go Stargazing!
