Station Inn Stargazing


Evening Astronomy Event

Come and join us, as part of The Yorkshire Dales National Park "Dark Skies Festival" for an evening of stargazing down by the famous Ribblehead Viaduct. The National Park has been designated a "Dark Sky Reserve" by the International Dark Sky Association and on a clear night as well as 1000's of stars & some distant planets, the Milky Way is often clearly visible.

So join us on the 19th February where you can join astronomers Neill Sanders and Dr Fred from "Go Stargazing" https://www.gostargazing.co.uk on a tour of the night skies. You can enjoy a laser guided tour of the constellations and view amazing deep space objects through large telescopes. If the weather is clear and for those that are able there will be a short walk to the Ribblehead Viaduct with Pete Collins from Diamond Skies https://www.diamond-skies.co.uk who will explain how to take magical photographs of the night sky.

As part of this event a warming supper and drink will also be provided for your enjoyment.

Ticket Prices are £15.00 non refundable and can be purchased at our "Eventbrite" site, by clicking on this link. The event starts at 2000hrs but we recommend arrival at the Inn by 1930hrs.

Please note please dress appropriately for the outdoors as it is often very cold at this time of year. Should cloud cover prevent outdoor stargazing there will be an astronomer led presentation inside The Station Inn.
