NEW FOREST 1-HOUR STARGAZING EXPERIENCE
Enjoy a 1-hour adventure among the stars on our New Forest Stargazing Experience. We’ll meet you at one of our stargazing locations in the New Forest for a grand tour of the night sky. An experienced astronomer will be on hand to guide you through the stars and constellations that we can see from the ground. We’ll then take you on a journey across the cosmos in search of star systems, star clusters, nebulae and even galaxies beyond our own. If we have the moon and / or planets in the sky then we’ll visit them too with the telescope.

- 1-hour stargazing experience gift voucher for the New Forest valid for 2 years from month of issue

When can the voucher be used?
Book a date with us anytime in the next two years. you can book for a week night or weekend night any time of he year, except 24 – 31 December, and of course subject to our astronomer’s availability. Please consider booking up to 8 weeks in advance of when you want to stargaze. If you’d like to see a planet through a telescope let us know. Planets move against the background stars so are not always visible.
What if it is raining or cloudy?
Naturally cloud and rain is always a threat. When booking the stargazing experience we recommend that you choose 2 or 3 nights initially on which you’d be happy for us to run the experience for you. 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 you.
