Station Inn Stargazing at Ribblehead

Saturday 19th February 2022 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

Station Inn - Ribblehead
Ribblehead, Carnforth, Lancashire, LA6 3AS

Experience the fabulous starry skies above Ribblehead with astronomers Neill and Dr Fred from Go Stargazing and astrophotographer Pete Collins from Diamond Skies.

Enjoy an astronomy presentation from the comfort of the pub, then head outdoors for a laser-guided tour of the night skies and observe amazing objects through large aperture telescopes.

If the skies are clear, you can also enjoy a short stroll to take pictures of the nearby Ribblehead Viaduct, which will begin to be illuminated by Moonlight during the mid-evening.

Event tickets include a hot broth and hot refreshments. Perhaps you might arrive early and have dinner in the Station Inn, maybe make a night of it and stay over!?

This event takes place as part of the Yorkshire Dales Dark Skies Festival 2022.

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.
