Sutton Bank, Near Thirsk, YO7 2EH


Description

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 also be available 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.
