Luxury Stargazing at The Farmhouse

Luxury Stargazing at The Farmhouse

Friday 12th April 2019 from 19:15pm to 22:45pm

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

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

During this event you will get to study our nearest celestial neighbour in all its glory. The moon will be in the ideal position and phase to view incredible mountains ranges and deep craters. Learn about this alien world which welcomed the first humans aboard Apollo 11 a half century ago. We’ll have telescopes at the ready and encourage you to take a picture using your smartphone (see image above for example) and go on a tour of the spring sky. Plus there’ll be a colourful interactive talk and a chance to handle space rocks over four billion years old!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 12/04/2019

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.
