LINCOLNSHIRE WOLDS 2-HOUR STARGAZING EXPERIENCE
Join astronomer Seb Jay for an amazing journey out among the stars on a Lincolnshire Wolds private 2-hour stargazing experience. Ideal for couples, families and small groups Seb will take you on a laser-guided tour of the stars and constellations that we can see from the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB. Learn how to identify the Plough, the North Star and Cassiopeia, along with a plethora of other star patterns and the stories behind them. We’ll then whisk you off on a journey across the universe using one of our large portable telescopes. Along the way you’ll have the chance to discover star systems, star clusters, the ghostly light from nebulae and even other galaxies far beyond our own. If the moon and / or planets are visible then we’ll go visit them too with the telescope. Jupiter and Saturn especially are an amazing sight in the size of telescope we use. See the rings around Saturn, as well as Jupiter’s cloud belts and moons. Best time to see Jupiter and Saturn from 2018 through 2021 is in the summertime sky.

All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. The voucher recipient may have up to 15 friends and family members share in the experience at no extra charge.
When can the Lincolnshire Wolds stargazing experience voucher be used?
The stargazing voucher can be used on a week night or weekend night anytime of the year, except 24-31 December and subject to our astronomer’s availability. Start times vary depending on season. In the wintertime we can start as early as 5:30pm. During midsummer we would start at 10:45pm or later, often in the late twilight with a view of Jupiter and / or Saturn.
What if it is raining or cloudy?
Naturally cloud and rain is always a threat. When booking the stargazing experience we recommend that the voucher recipient select 2 or 3 nights initially on which they’d be happy for us to run the experience. If it is cloudy / raining on all selected nights then we’ll simply roll the experience forward to an alternative date that works. We can keep rolling the experience forward until we are able to run the stargazing for them.
