Gaze and Graze at The Farmhouse Goathland

Saturday 29th February 2020 from 19:00pm to 22:00pm

Orchard Farm - Goathland
Orchard Lane, Goathland, YO22 5JX

The Farmhouse is blessed with beautiful night skies and we are delighted to offer our ‘Gaze & Graze’ evening combining a sumptuous outdoor dinner with an evening with your very own expert astronomer, Richard Darn.

The North York Moors National Park is one of England’s darkest areas and spectacular on clear nights! You will see up to 2,000 stars and the majestic Milky Way arching over-head together with star clusters, galaxies and spectacular shooting stars. It’s perfect for just sitting back and enjoying one of Mother Nature’s finest shows.

The first phase moon is due to be up until late evening and so there will be plenty to see.

This event is taking place as part of the National Parks Dark Skies Festival 2020.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 29/02/2020

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.
