If you are interested in the night sky and live in the Ingleton area this group might be for you. Astronomy evenings take place here at Broadrake once a month through the winter starting at 7.30pm. We aim to be outside observing if the weather is clear. Otherwise we 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.
These evenings are free and open to all.
