In 2020 it has not been business as usual, and the continuing impact of COVID-19 means that we are running a very different stargazing experience. Instead of the usual festival, we are launching ‘North Pennines Stargazing Week’ running throughout the October half-term holiday, from Friday 23 October to Sunday 1 November. There will be a star-studded programme of virtual events, how-to guides and online content to immerse you in the glorious dark skies of the North Pennines AONB.
Look out for: virtual events exploring the dark skies of the North Pennines AONB, children’s activities, interviews with experts, guides to stargazing – where to go and how to do it, online exhibition, daily stargazing tips.
We’ll be on social media using the hashtag #darkskiesnorthpennines. Why not share your own dark skies images and use the hashtag too? Our daily stargazing tips and how to guides will use the hashtag #backyardstargazing and we’d love you to share your own stargazing adventures with us.
