Grizedale Forest Visitor Centre, Grizedale, LA22 0QJ
We will be your guide taking you on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself. As its the day for lovers everywhere, we will try and show some of the skies wonders such as the Heart nebula. There will be powerful telescopes for you to gaze through, all operated by local astronomers, who will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!
We’ll tell you more about our dark skies and show startling images and videos of the objects we hope to see when we go outside, weather permitting. But even if the weather does not co-operate we’ll still have colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.
This event is reserved for adults only.
Did you know; from towns and cities we see just a handful of stars, but in the lake district we could count 2,000 at any one time!
Please book early – places are limited.
The event is held at Grizedale visitor centre, meeting in “The Yan” before going outside to see the stars.
