Astrophotography on Holy Island

Saturday 27th August 2022 from 21:30pm to 23:30pm

Holy Island Chare Ends Car Park
Chare Ends, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, TD15 2SE

Enjoy the unique location of Holy Island with beautiful scenery and pristine dark skies at this astrophotography workshop with an experienced tutor and guide, Gary Lintern from Photography Experiences.

This workshop will run from astronomical twilight through peak time for Milky Way visibility. The route will depend on the group’s preferences and shooting opportunities, including Lindisfarne Castle and the harbour.

Everyone is welcome, from beginners to people who’ve dabbled with night photography to more experienced photographers.

Note that the meeting location may not be Chare Ends Car Park but will be on the island.

For more details and to book this event, please visit the Photography Experiences website.

This event takes place as part of the Festival of Astrophotograpy 2022, a series of workshops across northern England and online events during the end of August and the first week of September.

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.
