Upcoming Astronomy Events
As a service to our community, Sky & Telescope lists astronomy-related events, including star parties, observatory public nights, astronomy talks, and more. Star parties offer dark skies and astronomical fellowship and often cater to families and feature special activities for kids. Public nights give the general public a chance to view the sky through large telescopes, and public talks are a great place to learn the fundamentals of the science and the craft.
You’ll also see online events offered here.
And if you’d like free copies of Sky & Telescope‘s Let’s Go Stargazing flyer or door prizes for your next star party, you can fill out this form.
Stargazing in Northumberland at Twice Brewed Observatory
October 12, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm BST
An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 18, 2021
Experience incredible starry skies from the Twice Brewed Observatory at the Twice Brewed Inn!
Located in the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, the venue benefits from minimal light pollution, meaning that, on Moonless nights especially, you’ll have a clear view of the Milky Way arching across the sky and see many more stars than can normally be spotted from our towns and cities.
These events are ideal for beginners, with each group of guests given their own personal Dobsonian telescope with astronomers on hand offering friendly, expert guidance.
Stargazing packages are available to include dinner, bed and breakfast, thus making a great opportunity for a weekend break to explore nearby Hadrian’s Wall, Vindolanda Roman Fort, Sycamore Gap and The Sill Landscape Discovery Centre, all of which are within walking distance.
