CANCELLED - Stargazing at Beacon Fell

CANCELLED - Stargazing at Beacon Fell

Wednesday 27th May 2020 from 22:00pm to Thursday 28th May 2020 00:00am

Beacon Fell Visitor Centre
Beacon Fell, Preston, PR3 2NL

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. He will try and show some of the skies wonders through powerful telescopes and binoculars and will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!

Robert will tell you more about how we need to protect 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 there still will be 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 - stargazing nights can be cold, bring binoculars if you have them and also a torch.

Did you know; from towns and cities we see just a handful of stars, but in the Forest of Bowland we could count 2,000 at any one time!

Please book early - places are limited.

The event is held at Beacon Fell visitor centre, meeting in the activity room before going outside to see the stars. The centre can be found on the South West corner of the fell, adjacent to the one way road around the hill, at the spot where there are car parks on both sides of the road.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 27/05/2020
