Stargazing Supper with Local Astronomer Gary Lintern

Stargazing Supper with Local Astronomer Gary Lintern

Thursday 24th October 2019 from 19:00pm to 22:00pm

Lord Crewe Arms
The Square, Blanchland, DH8 9SP, North East

Join local Astronomer Gary Lintern in the Gatehouse at the Lord Crewe Arms for an evening of stargazing. Gary is an expert in his field and will give a beginners’ guide to stargazing. If the weather is clear, expect a trip to the bottom of our garden to look at the night sky through astronomy binoculars (there will be enough for everyone). You will be able to see a great deal through the binoculars. Some objects, such as star clusters, look better than they do through telescopes. We will also discuss free software and mobile apps, to help you find your way around the night sky.

This event is taking place as part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival 2019 running from 23rd October to 3rd November 2019.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 24/10/2019

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.
