All About the Aurora (live from the Arctic Circle!)

Yorkshire Dales National Park
Two people stood with their arms in the air under the Aurora by Jacqueline Garellick

Join astronomer and aurora expert Matt Robinson who will be broadcasting from the Norwegian island of Senja! Matt will tell you all about the aurora, why they are also called the Northern Lights and how you might spot them from the UK — it’s possible to see them from the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors if the conditions are right! Weather permitting Matt will use highly sensitive cameras to show you a LIVE view of the aurora from his location in the arctic circle. Do not miss this!

This event is FREE OF CHARGE and will take the form of a Zoom meeting that will also be streamed LIVE to the Go Stargazing Facebook page. If you wish to participate in the Zoom meeting (where you may ask questions of the presenters) please register by clicking on the event website.

The event is taking place as part of the National Parks Virtual Dark Skies Week which is organised jointly by the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks, this with enthusiastic support from the team at Go Stargazing!
