**** SOLD OUT ******

 

Join Neill Sanders from Go Stargazing and witness one of the rarest events in astronomy – a partial solar eclipse!

On the morning of the 25th of October, the Moon will pass in front of the Sun as viewed from Earth. You can view this event safely using the special solar telescopes provided. Solar glasses will also be available; these allow you to view the event without harming your eyes.

The eclipse starts at approximately 10:04, the maximum eclipse when the Moon will cover most of the Sun is approximately 10:57, and the Moon will leave the Sun’s disc at 11:51 (all times are BST).

During the partial Eclipse, from 11.15am there will be an opportunity to decorate your own eclipse biscuit! provided by the team at Firebox Cafe.

Participants will also receive a voucher for 10% off The Firebox Halloween themed menu!

Booking is advised – email hawes@yorkshiredales.org.uk or call 01969 666210

This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Skies Fringe Festival 2022.

N.B – If the weather is poor, there will be an indoor presentation and the opportunity to observe the eclipse live on a screen.”
