This is part of the Dark Sky festival involving all the North York Moors dark sky sites.  We shall be hosting the event for Danby Moors Centre on October 27th. 

The public book to attend the event, with places at the Danby moors centre limited to 60 adults, plus a number of minors, so we could be talking 70-90 people if it is fully booked.  We hosted a similar event last February, which was very well attended and received, enjoying clear conditions, great for observing but a tad chilly i recall.  The event is due to start at 18:30h and therefore we are looking to be on site by 18:10h (setting off no later than 17:45h) making use of the little daylight still available for setting up scopes.

Personnel and transportation is therefore requested, as we would like to field 6-8 scopes dependant on the weather.  If conditions are so-so, Mark will be giving a presentation indoors, though we hope to carry out a scale galaxy system outdoors (something new). Should it be an awful forecast, the event will be cancelled- though we shall have to wait until a few days before to make sense of the forecasts.
