Go Stargazing at Hamsterley - The Moon up close

Tuesday 16th 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.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 16/04/2019

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.
