A Night with the Stars

Thursday 25th October 2018 from 19:00pm to 22:00pm

Lord Crewe Arms
The Square, Blanchland, DH8 9SP, North East

Join us in our recently renovated Gatehouse for an evening of stargazing with Joe Gordon. Joe is an expert in his field and will give a beginners’ guide to stargazing. If the weather is clear, expect a trip to the bottom of our garden to have a look through the telescopes!

There will be hearty stew and a delicious pud to keep you warm, with the fire pits lit, cosy blankets and hot chocolate. Wrap up warm and bring a red light torch (if you have one).

This event is taking place as part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival 2018.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 25/10/2018

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
