Night Navigation with a National Park Ranger

Monday 29th October 2018 from 18:00pm to 21:00pm

Goat Hill Bridge Car Park
Off B3358, Simonsbath, TA24 7LL

Join a National Park Ranger to gain confidence in visiting the countryside at night, listen to the sounds and gaze in awe at the heavens. It is equally likely the mists will be swirling and the rain sweeping across – a different but eerie experience not to be missed! Expect very rough ground in exceptionally low light; torches are not going to be used but please bring one for emergency use. 3½ miles maximum. This event may be cancelled in bad weather. £5p.p. Booking essential. This event is taking place as part of the Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2018.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 29/10/2018

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.
