Fred Stevenson, from Go Stargazing, will take us on a voyage of discovery looking at the Andromeda Galaxy – the most distant object you can see with your naked eye. Discover how it and other galaxies were discovered and explore the mysteries of the distant universe. After the talk we will (weather permitting) enjoy stunning views of the starry night sky (from the Dark Sky Discovery Site) with powerful telescopes and binoculars.
This event is taking place as part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival 2019 running from 23rd October to 3rd November 2019.
