Event description

Description

The Yorkshire Dales National Park remains one of the darkest places in England and we are excited to celebrate this with our second Dark Skies event. The evening will start with a glass of bucks fizz whilst you settle in. We have the pleasure of welcoming Stuart Atkinson, lifelong amateur astronomer based in Kendal. who will give an hour-long illustrated talk about basic stargazing - no prior knowledge or experience needed. You will then head outside to see the real thing with Stuart pointing out the stars and constellations featured in his talk. Then, back inside to take a look at some of his personal collection of rare and valuable meteorites, and answer questions before the evening ends. 7.30 – 10 pm. By May, the planet Venus would be bright in the west, an "Evening Star", and Jupiter would be coming up in the east, so there will be things to see.

Tickets are £12 per person and include a glass of Bucks Fizz and a light meal: Places are limited to 30, so please book quickly.
