The Rugged Outdoors
Harome, Helmsley, YO62 5JN
As part of the Dark Skies Festival in the North York Moors the team at Rugged Outdoors are hosting this stargazing event at their dark sky location just outside of Helmsley, this in collaboration with volunteers from the Teeside Astronomical Science Centre at Wynyard.
Bring along a chair, blanket, flask of something warm and your stargazing equipment. We’ll have a campfire roaring and our latest addition- the wood-fired oven will be in full swing. This event is completely free of charge although the organisers ask that you contact them to book your spaces. If you’d like a pizza (£7.50) let them know upon booking!
Please note that this event has already taken place on 22/02/2020
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.
