Go Stargazing at Hamsterley

Tuesday 17th January 2017 from 19:00pm to Thursday 19th January 2017 22:00pm

Hamsterley Forest Visitor Centre
Hamsterley Forest, Bedburn, County Durham, DL13 3NL

The dark skies above Hamsterley Forest make for a great place to stargaze, the Milky Way is clearly visible arching across the skies and thousands more stars can be seen compared to our towns and cities.

You and your family are invited to join local amateur astronomer Neill Sanders, former volunteer at Kielder Observatory and member of the Go Stargazing team, for an evening of stargazing and observing through large telescopes.

Learn how to find your way around the night sky and how to locate fascinating objects including those our eyes alone cannot see — you are welcome to bring binoculars or perhaps the telescope Santa brought you for Christmas! Hot drinks will be available for a small fee and the event itself is free or charge. A car parking ticket will be required.

To see the stars depends on the weather, therefore this event will be short notice and run on a “first clear night” basis taking place on one of the following dates:

Tuesday 17th January 2017 or Wednesday 18th January 2017 or Thursday 19th January 2017.
