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.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 21/10/2019

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.
