Full Moon Stargazing at Alnmouth Beach 8th September – £40

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 full moon rises above the sea the night sky will be lit up for you to enjoy!

7pm – 7-30pm: Choice of sandwich with chips and relish included at the Schooner Hotel (Most haunted hotel in Great Britain)

7:30pm – 8pm: Introduction to Cosmology and Stargazing Talk at Schooner Hotel

8:30pm – 9:45pm: Opportunity to use advanced telescopes to examine the craters of the moon as it rises over the sea at 9pm as well as the constellations. We will have experts on site to assist you in using the telescopes to find astronomical objects in the night sky whilst on the beach.
