Night walk and stargazing at Dunkery Beacon


Date: 20th Apr 2019 8:00pm-10:30pm
We meet at 8.00 pm and hike up onto Dunkery beacon, the highest point on Exmoor as dusk falls, to be rewarded with a 360' view of our wonderful Exmoor skies, and across to the welsh coast. As night falls I will talk you around the visible constellations and chat about the stars and planets, demonstrating the use of Apps to find your way around the sky. We will walk back down to the cars for a hot drink and homemade snacks., and to use our telescopes to delve into deepest, darkest space. Hopefully we will be able to see other galaxies, ring nebulae, the moon craters etc, clouds willing! please wear plenty of warm,waterproof clothing and good walking boots or shoes Booking essential on 01643 831759
