Inspired by the North York Moors National Park’s Dark Skies Festival, we are delighted to host our very own Stargazing Party! It has been a few years since we hosted our last stargazing event, but with the kind help of Mark Dawson from the Whitby & District Astronomical Society we thought it was time to revisit the sky with his expert help. Our boarding students will also be enlisted to help out with a scaled solar system demonstration before we start observing. Mark will then talk on what is visible, pointing out the brighter stars, constellations and objects of interest.
Key details are as follows:
Date: 1st March
Start Time: 19.15 for 19.30
Location: Our front lawn, facing the sea
Limited places are available. Please contact Angelique on firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Here’s hoping for clear skies!!
