Stargazing from Exford


Date: 14th Aug 2019 9:30pm-11:00pm
We meet up at 9.30pm, to allow you to have a good Exmoor pub supper! I can come and find you if you are dining in Exford. The Crown and The White Horse, both in Exford, do a good meal and also The Royal Oak, Withypool and the Royal Oak, Winsford. We will then have a night walk out onto the moor as darkness falls and the stars come out, I will talk you around the sky and demonstrate the use of apps on iPhone and ipad, and then we walk back down to the farmhouse to use our telescopes. If the evening is overcast or wet we will do a shorter walk and than I will use my simulator to show you what should be up there! Please wear comfortable, warm and waterproof clothing as it can get cold when sitting still on the moor. You will need a torch each, walking poles if you like them and hiking boots or shoes.....some of the terrain is quite uneven, particularly after dark.
