Stargazing at High Force Waterfall

Sunday 22nd March 2020 from 20:00pm to 21:30pm

The High Force Hotel
Alston Road, Middleton-in-Teesdale, DL12 0XH

Discover the magic of the night skies at this stargazing event at High Force Waterfall.

Walk down to the stunning High Force waterfall, learning about the unique landscape and what makes it so special as you go. Once you’ve arrived, you’ll have the chance to light up the waterfalls with torches and take photographs on your phone (other cameras are not permitted, due to available space).

If the sky is clear, you’ll look at and discuss what can be seen in the night sky. You’ll be provided with astronomy binoculars, so you can really appreciate the awe-inspiring web of constellations above. You’ll leave the event with a greater knowledge of the dark sky, including how to find key objects on your own. Perfect for anyone with a passion for stargazing or simply those who enjoy unforgettable views in unique surroundings.

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.
