NOTE EARLIER START TIME. This event is part of the Yorkshire Dales Dark Skies Festival.
The plan is for Pete to give an introductory talk, then walk or drive to Ribblehead Viaduct for a practical session. If it is cloudy Pete will have a video lined up to show after a break for refreshments.
If you are interested in the night sky and live in the Ingleton area this group might be for you. Astronomy evenings take place at various venues usually in the Ingleton area and we will aim to be outside observing if the weather is clear. Otherwise we will meet inside, hopefully there will be a short talk, an opportunity to find out what to look out for in the night sky over the coming weeks and a chance to exchange ideas.
We are often joined by Pete Collins,a keen amateur astronomer who takes stunning nightscape photography. You can see his work displayed locally or visit his website www.diamond-skies.co.uk.
He lives in Manchester and has been involved with and Astronomy Group there for many years, but is spending an increasing amout of time in Ingleton to take advantage of the dark skies up here and is keen to get a group together locally.
If you want to be kept up to date about local stargazing events please ask to be added to our Google Group "Ingelton Stargazers".
