Join award-winning photographer Rich Bunce for a night time walk to take in the spectacular Geminids meteor shower over Ilkley Moor.

We’ll meet on the moor to witness this phenomenon and capture some fantastic images with your camera, guided by Rich in a relaxed and informative manner. Learn more about the settings on your camera and the techniques you need to make the most of this opportunity.

The Geminids are considered one of the best meteor showers every year because the individual meteors are bright, and they come fast and furious. You will not want to miss this event. Booking required.

Please note that this has already taken place on 15/12/2023

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.
