Bardon Mill, Hexham, NE47 7AN
Everyone is invited to join the friendly and experienced amateur astronomers from Go Stargazing for the peak of this year's Perseids meteor shower at this free-to-attend event! The Perseids are arguably the most reliable of the meteor showers shows and even with a near full Moon in the sky this year it should still be possible to spot numerous shooting stars every hour.
We originally chose to host this event at Wild Northumbrian (many thanks to all of you who booked on it) however we have had to change the venue to the Twice Brewed Inn near Bardon Mill. Whilst we have been able to move the location unfortunately we haven't been able to move the pizza oven! Apologies for this change of plan! If you are planning to eat the Twice Brewed Inn offers a fantastic selection of bar meals and we recommend booking ahead.
We will still have our large telescopes available to observe the Moon and planets Jupiter and Saturn! You're welcome to bring picnic blankets and comfy chairs to observe the shooting star spectacle above!
Numbers are limited so please reserve your places in advance by indicating how many free tickets you require. If for any reason you book tickets but cannot come along please let us know as soon as possible! We look forward to seeing you!
- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
