Arrive early at the newly extended Dales Bike Centre cafe with pizza specials, cake and hot drinks available from 17:00.

From 18:00 there may be an opportunity for viewing of Jupiter and a crescent moon in the early twilight.

From 18:30 – 19:30, as full darkness falls, we will visit the wonders of the late winter and spring time sky through the eyes of local nightscape photographer Paul Clark.

Weather permitting, this will be followed by night sky tours through telescopes manned by Reeth Informal Astronomy Group.

If cloudy, there will be a presentation on choosing and using an astronomical telescope by members of the group.

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.
