Hamsterley Forest, Bedburn, County Durham, DL13 3NL
Join the team from Go Stargazing at the fabulous location of Hamsterley Forest for an evening exploring our Universe! The priority at all of these events is stargazing so if the skies are clear you'll be observing using large aperture telescopes with expert amateur astronomers (and some professionals!) to help you.
We'll keep you warmed by breaking for soup + roll + hot drink and then entertain you with a presentation on an astronomical topic. If the weather does not permit us to be outside you'll instead enjoy a virtual tour of the night time skies and be shown how to find astronomical objects of interest. Ticket price includes food, drink, car parking and transaction fees.
- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.
- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
This event is being organised by Go Stargazing who should be contacted if you have any queries.
