Bowland Meteors at Gisburn Dark Sky Discovery Site

Bowland Meteors at Gisburn Dark Sky Discovery Site

Friday 17th November 2017 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

Gisburn Forest Hub
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.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 17/11/2017

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.
