Half Moon Stargazing at Alnmouth Beach Friday 23rd March
We thought we’d combine one of Northumberland’s most stunning beaches with the night sky to provide a fantastic stargazing experience like no other. Don’t worry about falling over in the dark, once the half moon rises above the sea the night sky will be lit up for you to enjoy!
Venue: ALNMOUTH VILLAGE GOLF CLUB, NE66 2RZ
Bar available as well as tea/coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits
8:30pm – Introductory talk by our expert Cosmologist and an opportunity to handle ‘space samples’.
9:15pm – 10.30pm: Use of advanced telescopes and binoculars to examine the craters of the moon as well as the constellations in the night sky. We will have experts on site to assist you in using the telescope(s) to find astronomical objects whilst on the beach.
NB: Timings for talks etc will be flexible according to weather conditions. If skies are clear, we will use the opportunity to make use of outdoor equipment.
We depart from Newcastle Business School (NE1 2SU) at 7.15pm and return for approximately 11:30pm.
Price: £30, £25 for students in full-time education
£10 excluding transport to/from the event
At Lundgren Tours, we want you to have the best opportunity to observe the night sky at our Stargazing Events. Therefore, if total cloud cover is forecast for the night of the event, we will seek to re-arrange the date. Should the event need to be re-arranged, we will notify customers by Thursday evening latest.
