Alston Skywatch

Alston Skywatch


Come and join us for night of stargazing! This event is at South Tyndall Railway in Alston. Advance booking only. After a short chat about what is on view in the night sky and a quick introduction to how to use the telescopes and binoculars we will get outside. This is a ‘hands on’ event so you will learn how to move the telescopes around to different objects in the sky to discover things yourself. Feel free to bring your own telescope and cameras with tripods - but please be aware that you will be responsible for keeping them safe. If you decide to bring equipment, please come about 6pm to setup - we will allocate some space for you. If it is cloudy we will use software to tour the night sky, as well as handling some meteorites from Mars and the Moon. Wrap up warm and bring a red light torch (if you have one). This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival running from 20 October to 4 November 2018.
