Walking jackets may be handy for night beneath the stars
Bookmark and Share
Warm walking jackets may be very useful for those hoping to feel comfortable as they enjoy some stargazing in the North York Moors.

The national park authority is holding a stargazing event at Sutton Bank National Park Centre on October 1st, when - provided the clouds stay away - the public will be able to study the heavens, enjoy a new moon and hear talks by members of York Astronomical Society.

Honorary Secretary at the Society Marton Whillock said the location is "ideal" because of its low light pollution levels, meaning more stars can be seen.

"Come well wrapped up and join us for what promises to be a very exciting evening," he added.

This advice could be very useful, as a clear sky would mean a colder night.

Britain's best site for stargazing is the Galloway Forest Park, which is the only UK site with official dark sky status designated by the International Astronomical Society.
