Cresswell Village Hall
Morpeth, Newcastle, Northumberland, NE61 5LD
Join me in beautiful Cresswell Village under the dark skies of Northumberland to watch for the Aurora. Solar activity is on the increase leading to more and bigger displays of the Northern Lights and all of our events are chosen for nights when the conditions are good. As well as looking for the Northern Lights, we will be looking for the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy and we see the return of the solar system´s biggest planets Jupiter and Saturn which I´ll hope to show you through powerful telescopes. The rings of Saturn are an unforgettable sight!
