Join our Star Camp for an astronomical weekend in Teesdale. The camp is perfect for novice astronomers and is suitable for people aged six and over. Telescopes will be provided, along with expert guidance and you are welcome to bring your own equipment too, including cameras (with tripods) and binoculars. There will also be astronomy-themed talks, solar observing and bottle rocket launching. During the weekend Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus will all be in the sky, plus a big Moon, with its deep craters and high mountains (we can even help you take a picture with your mobile phone). We’ll also take you on a tour of the autumn constellations. You will arrive on the Friday night to a mulled wine reception at 7pm – stargazing will be available (weather permitting) on the Friday and Saturday night with departure on Sunday. Bring warm clothing and a red light torch (if you have one).

Pitch fees will be £19 per night (electric);  £16 per night (non-electric) – plus £8.50 per person per night ‘astronomy charge’ (£7 for under 16s). Book with Doe Park Caravan site: www.doepark.co.uk / 01833 650302 / info@doepark.co.uk

This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival running from 22 to 31 October 2021 – www.NorthPenninesStarFest.org.uk #NorthPennStarFest21 #NPennDarkSkies
