Inner Promenade, Lytham Saint Annes, Lancashire, FY8 1BD, North West
Robert Ince will be your guide taking you on an incredible journey through the constellations 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 darker areas of Lancashire we could count 2,000 at any one time!
Please book early - places are limited.
The event is held at the Fairhaven RSPB Ribble Discovery Centre, situated on the edge of popular Fairhaven Lake, the Ribble Discovery Centre is run in partnership with Fylde Borough Council and is the gateway to exploring the Ribble Estuary - one of the most important wetlands in the country and home to more than 250,000 birds. We will meet in the activity room before going outside to see the stars.
Parking is available on the roadside alongside the Lake or at the car parks at the opposite ends of the Lake opposite the Marine Drive and St. Paul’s Avenue turnings.
