Dark Skies Festival Planetarium Experience at Tan Hill

Friday 14th February 2020 from 17:00pm to 22:00pm

Tan Hill Inn
Reeth, Richmond, DL11 6ED

What better way to explore the night sky than at the world famous Tan Hill Inn – a registered Dark Sky Discovery Site! So join us on our tour of the universe and explore the wonders of the night sky in our state of the art planetarium.

The first show starts at 5pm and the last show at 9pm with as many shows we can fit in between… Then from 9:30pm until 10:30pm we’ll be stargazing with telescopes if the weather permits us to do so. The event is free of charge (the planetarium is first come first served) so we hope to see you there!

This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 which runs from 14th February to 1st March.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 14/02/2020

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.
