Dark Sky Festival Stargazing at Bentham

Robin Lane, Bentham, Lancashire, LA2 7AG

Wrap up warm and join amateur astronomer, Robert Ince, for an evening of stargazing.

Robert will be your guide on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, whilst also showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself. Weather permitting, he will show some of the sky’s wonders through powerful telescopes and binoculars and will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!

And if the weather doesn’t co-operate there will be colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.

Suitable for adults and accompanied children 10 years and over. (Indoor event is wheelchair accessible.)

This event is part of the Forest of Bowland Dark Skies Festival 2024.

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.
