It’s that time of year again when half term holidays coupled with dark nights, will hopefully coincide with clear skies, so we have a busy few days at the start of March.  First up is Fyling Hall School on Friday 1st March.

Inspired by the North York Moors National Park’s Dark Skies Festival, Fyling Hall School have invited us to host their very own Stargazing Party on March 1st (Friday).  The event is also being co-promoted by Baytown Coffee, so perhaps something warm and welcoming will be on the cards. 

It has been a few years since we last visited the School for a star night event, and it will be nice to renew ties.  The boarding students will be flogged enlisted to help out with a scaled solar system demonstration before observing is commenced, (weather permitting), with members pointing out what to look for in the winter/early spring night sky. 

The location will be the front lawn of the School (facing the sea) starting around 19:20h.  We shall therefore need to be present on site shortly after 19:00h.

The event has been publicised in the Whitby Gazette, but further details can be found by contacting Angelique at .

Who knows what the conditions will be like (certainly the weatherman don’t) so Plan B and C will be lurking in the wings.
