Star Gazing Camping Weekend
9th-11th August 2019
We invite you to join us to gaze at the stars and enjoy the night sky without light pollution!
Perseids Meteor Showers will reach its peak time mid August and according to experts we can expect to see 10-15 Perseids per hour.
During the day we will hold a couple of workshops to make our own refractors, spectroscope and solar viewer to help us explore the beauty of the skies.
There will also be a talk on astronomy and astrology and a large telescope to allow us to look at some stars more closely.
No need to buy a ticket just book for your camping.
We are less than a week away and we cant wait to meet Mark Chamberlain and Chris Millington from Herefordshire Astronomical Society We are over the moon that they are joining us for Saturday Thanks to Herefordshire Astronomical Society we will have the chance to look into different telescopes to look at the moon and also the sun thorough a special solar telescope. Mark and Chris will give us a couple of fascinating talks from late afternoon onward after the creative workshops.
Charlotte Elisabeth will also join us with her Sand Art Workshop again
After the talks before dark you will have the option to purchase a delicious Stellar soup with fresh roll from Joe`s Soup Stall. All the soup will be vegan based with options to add your own stardust sprinkles to make it veggie or meaty The soup will be available to pre order on Friday upon check in.
(Please note that other than the Saturday evening soup stall this event is self catering)
As the night draws in we will get some blankets out, focus on what is above and watch the beautifully dark skies that Out To Grass is so proud to be blessed with.
Our bar will serve a selection of local beer during the day but it wont be short of brandy coffee and hot chocolate either later at night. ( oh, and we ought to mention marshmallows too ☕️ )
Please note that this event is not a music event. Due to the nature of the event there will be minimal site lighting during the night so it is essential that you bring a torch with you.
We will post a stargazers checklist on Facebook in the coming days to help you to pack for the weekend.
