So you have bought a telescope, but do you know how things in the night sky will really appear in it? Get the truth from experienced astronomer Richard Darn who will guide you through what to expect and how some objects can actually look better than in those magazine photographs we marvel at. Set your expectations right and astronomy can be a fascinating voyage of discovery. Discover the best way to watch a meteor shower and spot tell-tale signs that the elusive Northern Lights are about to appear. Richard has over 40 years experience as an amateur astronomer and was part of the team that achieved dark sky status for much of Northumberland. He is a regular guest on BBC local radio. This event will include stargazing opportunities – weather permitting. Wrap up warm and bring a red-light torch (if you have one). This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival 2017, organised by the AONB Partnership and supported by Visit County Durham and the Science & Technology Facilities Council.
