TCR Hub are delighted to be working in partnership with Gary Fildes, Lead Astronomer from Grassholme Observatory to offer families in Teesdale the chance to enjoy two virtual Astronomy workshops from the comfort of your own homes, on Mon 15th and 22nd March at 7.30pm.
In the first session, What’s in the Sky tonight?, Gary will guide you through the winter star fields. Our winter skies are the most alluring and beautiful of the celestial year.
As Family Activities Coordinator at TCR Hub explains, “If the skies are clear, Gary will show what we can see above Teesdale around the Spring Equinox through the telescope, via Zoom. However, if we have a cloudy evening, Gary will be able to share footage from clear evenings so we won’t miss out on the experience.
We are so pleased to be working with the Observatory to enable families to enjoy this amazing resource here in Teesdale, before then going to explore it in the flesh, when the Observatory can re-open.”
The purpose-built Grassholme observatory will be re-opening to the public later this year and will offer you the opportunity to gaze into the vastness and beauty of the universe. In the meantime, you can experience the views that the high tech instruments and computers offer as Gary will take you on a journey that is simultaneously inspirational education and accessible for all.
A family ticket costs £4 and includes a planisphere for each Teesdale family who book, delivered to your door before the workshop. Fully funded places are available.
