Horsley, Rochester, NE19 1TA
This event offers a wonderful opportunity for a short stargazing break to one of the darkest locations in the UK at one of the most welcoming of venues, The Redesdale Arms.
Join experienced and enthusiastic amateur astronomers as they give you a guided tour of the heavens and observe planets, galaxies, star clusters and nebulae through powerful telescopes. You’ll undoubtedly feel a sense of wonder when you see the Milky Way arching overhead, the combined light of hundreds of millions of stars stretching across the dark skies of Northumberland.
There will also be presentations and astronomical talks should the weather not be favourable as well as solar observing through the daytime.
