Landscape Astrophotography Workshop - Geminid Meteor Shower

Landscape Astrophotography Workshop - Geminid Meteor Shower

Thursday 13th December 2018 from 18:00pm to 20:30pm

Durham Dales Centre
Castle Gardens, Stanhope, DL13 2FJ

Join experienced astrophotographer Gary Lintern capturing images of the Geminids meteor shower from a dark sky location in Weardale. Meeting at a pre-arranged location in Stanhope (we have presumed the Durham Dales Centre) your small group of no more than 10 will drive out to the best dark sky location nearby. This event is ideal for those with some experience using their camera settings (setting shutter speed, ISO, focussing manually) and you’ll certainly need a camera tripod!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 13/12/2018

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.
