Birkdale Farm - Mowthorpe
Terrington, York, YO60 6QE

We are staging an exciting stargazing evening as part of the Dark Sky Festival 2020 in the beautiful village of Terrington in the Howardian Hills. The wonders of the spring sky will be glimpsed with powerful telescopes, including galaxies far, far away. Plus we’ll look for a fab three of the moon, Uranus and Venus, all close to each other in the evening sky! There’ll also be colourful beginner’s talks, a chance to handle space rocks over four billion years old and yummy homemade cakes. Suitable for adults and children over 5 years old. Goes ahead in all weather. A barn will be used for talks.

This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 which runs from 14th February to 1st March.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 28/02/2020

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.
