Stargazing and Night photography at Ashes Farm

Saturday 10th February 2024 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Ashes Farm Bed & Breakfast, Holiday Cottage and Lodges
Selside, Settle, North Yorkshire, BD24 0JB

Enjoy an evening of stargazing and photography at Ashes Farm. Learn some basic constellations and have the chance to learn about night photography, then enjoy a bite to eat while sharing your discoveries.

This event is a unique stargazing experience where you will hopefully get the chance to enjoy the clear dark skies of the Yorkshire Dales and practice some night photography with an experienced photographer, on hand to support those that need it.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park has officially been granted the status of an ‘International Dark Sky Reserve’, making this area one of the best places in the world to view the skies above. Stargazing around the new Moon is the best time to stargaze as the skies are nice and dark.

Once you have had the chance to enjoy the skies and to take some snaps, the evening will conclude with some homemade soup and hot dogs.

Why not make a weekend of it, book one of our bed & breakfast rooms or self-catering accommodation and receive 10% discount on a two night stay.

This event is part of the Yorkshire Dales Dark Skies Festival 2024 which occurs from the 9th of February to the 25th of February.

Please note that this has already taken place on 10/02/2024

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.
