YOUR OWN PURPOSE-BUILT WINDOW ON THE UNIVERSE
This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival 21-29 October 2017, organised by the AONB Partnership and supported by Visit County Durham and the Science & Technology Facilities Council.
Discover the beauty of the Dark Skies of the North Pennines. We’ll start with an introductory indoor session using an amazing software programme that allows you to view all the wonders of the night sky in real time. Afterwards, weather permitting, we’ll go out and using the naked eye, binoculars and a telescope, view some of the wonders of the universe. The activity leader, Bruce Ferguson, has been a keen stargazer since the early 1970s when his interest in the night sky was inspired by the gift from his dad of his first telescope, a 3-inch refractor. Wrap up warm and bring a red-light torch (if you have one).
Cost: Adults - £5; Concessions - £2; Families - £10
