Birkdale Farm - Mowthorpe
Terrington, York, YO60 6QE
Join Astronomer Richard Darn for an evening of stargazing in the beautiful village of Terrington! This event coincides with the peak of the Orionid meteor shower so you could see the odd shooting star or two!
Powerful telescopes will reveal sparkling star clusters and distant galaxies and you may even be able to see the magnificent planet of Saturn and the summer Milky Way.
There’ll also be colourful beginner’s talks on stargazing in North Yorkshire and a chance to handle space rocks over four billion years old! Suitable for adults and children over 6 years old.
Goes ahead in all weather and soup included in the price. The barn will be used for talks.
