The Moors National Park Centre
Danby, Near Whitby, YO21 2NB
Come and explore the wonders of the winter night sky with members of the Whitby & District Astronomical Society on hand to guide you around the heavens. If conditions are not conducive for observing outside, the universe will come indoors with a presentation on the winter night sky. Accompanied children are welcome, but as a rough guide, the event is probably best suited to age 8 and above. Soup and hot drinks available. Please bring a torch.
