Details

Stargazing at Alston Moor Golf Club which is situated within the North Pennines AONB and UNESCO Global Geopark – the darkest mainland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This site has already been identified as having sky darkness good enough to view the Milky Way, and is therefore one of the best local venues to view the heavens.
The event will be run by a well-respected astronomer, Gary Lintern, FRAS, who has a further background in astrophotography.
As with all such events there is a chance of cloud and/or rain but both outdoor and indoor activities will be possible as the Clubhouse conference room will be set up for indoor information as well as 40 sets of quality binoculars will be available to see the heavens from outside (so no need to bring any of your own). Booking will be on a first come basis.
Drinks & refreshments will be available from the bar, also available is tea or coffee, and biscuits. All at a reasonable charge.
This will be a packed 2 hours suitable for beginners to amateur stargazers, and it is a program that is well tested and enjoyed by other audiences.
At the event the plans for a new observatory at the golf club will be available for view and discussion.
