Stargazing is a hobby that can be as simple, or as complicated, as you want. Without any specialist equipment, you can enjoy the night sky. Binoculars bring fainter objects into view, and a telescope allows to you see deeper, and further into our universe. Fred Stevenson of the North Pennines Astronomy Society will provide an informative guide to the night sky in January and what to look for.

This event will include both a talk and, weather permitting, an opportunity to view the stars through the Observatory's telescope.


Remember to wrap up warm, wear appropriate footwear and to bring a torch to see your way back to your car. DIRECTIONS 

Pre-registration is required to attend this event because capacity at the Observatory is limited.  

(Note: If this event becomes over-subscribed then an additional event will be arranged for a later date)
