Mindful Stargazing with Mark Westmoquette at Nethergill Farm

Mindful Stargazing with Mark Westmoquette at Nethergill Farm

Sunday 27th February 2022 from 18:00pm to 20:00pm

Nethergill Farm
Oughtershaw, Buckden, BD23 5JS

Enjoy a fantastic evening connecting with the Universe with astrophysicist and Zen teacher Mark Westmoquette.

Mark offers a unique method of mindfulness-based on science and research, which encourages you to find a deep connection with the cosmos. Like any activity done with mindfulness, stargazing can help you slow down, de-stress, connect with your surroundings, feel more aware and alive, and help you (re)discover a childlike curiosity about the world around us.

You do not need any experience with mindfulness/meditation, or indeed stargazing! This event includes wood-fired pizza, snacks and hot drinks.

This event takes place as part of the Yorkshire Dales Dark Sky Festival 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.
