Late Night Stargazing at Grizedale

Saturday 28th September 2019 from 22:30pm to Sunday 29th September 2019 00:30am

Grizedale Forest
Grizedale Forest Visitor Centre, Grizedale, LA22 0QJ

Robert Ince will be your guide taking you on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself. He will try and show some of the skies wonders through powerful telescopes and binoculars and will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!

Robert will tell you more about how we need to protect dark skies and show startling images and videos of the objects we hope to see when we go outside, weather permitting. But even if the weather does not co-operate there still will be colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.

Wrap up warm - stargazing nights can be cold, bring binoculars if you have them and also a torch.

Did you know; from towns and cities we see just a handful of stars, but in the lake district we could count 2,000 at any one time!

Please book early - places are limited.

The event is held at Grizedale visitor centre, meeting in the building known as "The Yan" before going outside to see the stars. The Yan is the large glass building on the hill above the main car park, accessible without crossing the road, adjacent to the large open area which is our stargazing location.

OS Grid ref: SD331944

Parking: - this cost is NOT included in the ticket.

The main Car Park is on a 24 hour 'Pay on exit' camera based automatic number plate recognition system. To avoid getting a parking fine you will need to make sure you pay for car parking as you leave as this is not included in the ticket price...
