Stargazing at Bampton Memorial Hall

Friday 30th September 2022 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

Bampton Memorial Hall
2 Croft End, Bampton, Cumbria, CA10 2RS

Local Astronomer Robert Ince will be your guide taking you on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself.

By far the best way to make sure you find the correct venue location is to use the excellent and free “what 3 words” location service – the detailed location link is here:

We will try and show some of the skies wonders through our powerful telescopes and binoculars. These are all operated by local astronomers, who will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!

We’ll tell you more about our dark skies and show startling images and videos of the objects we hope to see when we go outside, weather permitting. But even if the weather does not co-operate we’ll still have colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.

Wrap up warm – nights can be cold, bring binoculars if you have them and also a torch. Come dressed for the weather wearing warm clothing and sturdy footwear.

This event is only suitable for children aged 8+ who are able to sit and listen to a speaker. The ticket price includes free parking.

Please note that this has already taken place on 30/09/2022

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.
