Stargazing & Telescopes
In addition to a brilliant evening of stargazing fun, bring your own telescope to get some hands-on advice.
Date & Time
|Date||Monday 15th January, 2018|
|Time||8:30pm to 10:30pm|
Budding Astronomers from 10 to 100 years old will enjoy this event.
No equipment needed but if you want a bit of help with your own telescope - bring it along and we'd be happy to advise.
Get set for a night of astronomy fun and if you're a bit of a telescope fan then we'll give you a quick tour of the observatory's telescopes. If you already have a telescope you can bring it along and get some advice and help on setting it up, and getting the best out of it - usually just before the session begins, or towards the end of the evening. Finally, if you're thinking about buying a telescope we'll also happily guide you through the choices that the market has to offer.
If you have a telescope of your own and plan to bring it then please let us know at your time of booking.
During the winter months the observatory warm room is kept cosy and with hot drinks available all year round; this simply is the best and most comfortable way to be introduced to the dark starry skies of Northumberland and the universe beyond.
As of yet, we're unable to control the weather, so observing the skies can only go ahead if it's clear but you'll be pleased to know that all events go ahead in any weather conditions.
