Stargazing at Ryedale Folk Museum

Monday 25th February 2019 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Ryedale Folk Museum
Hutton Le Hole, Kirbymoorside, YO62 6UA

Enjoy a guided tour of the night sky, focusing on objects that reside far away from Earth within our Milky Way galaxy and even beyond, best observed through a large telescope. View a range of constellations and the objects that reside within them, including deep sky objects such as nebulae, star clusters and galaxies under some of the darkest skies in England.

The Hidden Horizons immersive star dome will be available for you to enjoy space related film and a virtual tour of the night sky also.

Wrap up warm as it can get very cold on a night and bring a torch. Hot drinks will be on sale to keep you warm. Feel free to bring along a pair of binoculars and a blanket to lie on can be great.

This event is taking place as part of the National Parks Dark Skies Festival 2019.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 25/02/2019

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.
