Meteors and Mindful Meanders - a night walk to view the Geminids

Meteors and Mindful Meanders - a night walk to view the Geminids

Friday 16th December 2022 from 19:00pm to 22:00pm

Saltergate Car Park
Lockton, Pickering, North Yorkshire, YO18 7NR

From the centre of this ancient land, the vistas are simply breathtaking. On a clear day, you can see for miles across expansive moorland, while above, the skies are huge.

It’s a perfect place to head out for a night walk, stopping every now and again to gaze in wonder at a sparkling, star-filled sky. View planets, constellations and the Milky Way arcing above. Or, if you’re really lucky, see colourful meteors shooting through the atmosphere.

These shooting stars have been known to produce 100 meteors an hour at their peak. They can create a spectacular display with multi-coloured tails ranging from white and yellow and a few greens, red and blue. But we can’t guarantee we’ll see it quite like this!

Even so, whether clear or cloudy, we’ll take you on an experience that’ll ramp up your feel-good factor. Alison will weave in a sensory, mindful activity that reconnects you to this big wide world. Fabian will tell you about planet earth and the night sky. You’ll learn lots, take tools away with you – and feel amazing too!

Please note that this has already taken place on 16/12/2022

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.
