Enjoy the dark skies above the North York Moors National Park in conjunction with Whitby & District Astronomical Society and take a peek at the lovely crescent moon, observe the magnificent rings of Saturn and explore some of the celestial wonders visible in the Autumn sky – including dying stars, stellar citadels and galactic island universes! If cloudy there will be an indoor presentation on the autumn night sky and a preview of the magnificent Winter constellations soon to rise. Hot drinks available. Wrap up warm and bring a torch!
