Stonehaugh Community Hall

Have you always fancied trying a spot of stargazing but just couldn’t get to grips with the jargon.
Uncertain what type of telescope to buy; refractor, reflector, manual or computerised.


Or do you own a telescope and aren’t sure where to point it.

Join us here in the Northumberand International Dark Sky Park and we’ll translate the jargon and point you in the right direction.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 13/01/2020

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.
