Go Stargazing at Hamsterley – Exciting Space Missions

Tuesday 30th April 2019 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

Hamsterley Forest Visitor Centre

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
