Stargazing with High Tea at Beckfoot Retreat

Saturday 22nd February 2020 from 18:00pm to 22:00pm

Beckfoot Retreat B&B
Ennerdale Water, Croasdale, CA23 3AU

Come to the Dark Skies accredited Ennerdale Valley to get amazing views of the night skies with no light pollution. Beckfoot Retreat is close to the lake shore – you can follow the path to the water’s edge to enjoy the amazing sight of stars, constellations and possibly the Milky Way reflected in Ennerdale Water.

From the Beckfoot Bank Barn we will be offering guidance for star gazing with binoculars and the Skyview app. Around the grounds we will have fire pits blazing to keep guests cosy while they stare at the stars.

Eat by candlelight and enjoy the magic of the night skies outside.

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.
