NEW FOREST 2-HOUR STARGAZING EXPERIENCE
Enjoy the magic of the night sky from Southern England with an experienced astronomer as your guide. Our 2-hour stargazing experience from the New Forest in Hampshire gets you close-up and personal with a starry sky. Discover star systems hundreds of light years away; find dazzling star clusters studded like gems along the Milky Way. There are red supergiants too, and the contorted wisps of nebula where stars are born, and what they leave behind when they die.
The 2-hour New Forest stargazing experience gives you an opportunity to see all this, and much more through a large telescope. If the moon and / or planets are visible then we’ll go visit them too with the telescope. You’ll get to see hundreds of craters dotted across the moon, ancient lava fields and mountain chains that are half the height of Everest! Our astronomer is on hand to explain the views tha you’ll see, and to give you a laser-guided tour of the stars and constellations that we can see from the New Forest.

When can the voucher be used?
Anytime you want in the next two years! We run stargazing experiences from the New Forest all year round except over the Festive period. You’ll need to book. Please consider booking 5 – 8 weeks in advance on when you want to stargaze. You’re welcome to choose a week night or weekend night, although weekend nights are more popular and so are less readily available. Do let us know if you’d like advice on the best time of year to stargaze from the New Forest.
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.
