North Pennines Observatory
The Old School House, Allenheads, NE47 9HR
In Estonia it is believed that the Northern Lights were magnificent horse drawn carriages carrying heavenly guests to a celestial wedding! This evening up at the observatory will begin with a talk from Laura Preston, North Pennines Astronomy Society, about the Northern Lights – what they are and how to see them. Weather permitting, we will do some live stargazing using binoculars and telescopes.
This event is taking place as part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival 2019 running from 23rd October to 3rd November 2019.
