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.
- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.
- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
