When is this event?
- 15th March 2024
Join Cairngorms Astronomy Club and Tomintoul & Glenlivet Development Trust in The Square, Tomintoul for an all ages telescope moon viewing session. The first quarter moon on the 16th is a great time to view and learn about the moon. We’ll meet at Tomintoul & Glenlivet Discovery Centre at 43 The Square, Tomintoul.
The Glenlivet and Tomintoul area is one of the best places in the Cairngorms National Park to discover the wonders of the night sky. Not only does this remote area have stunning dark skies but it also has easy access allowing everyone to enjoy a night sky brimming with stars.
We’ll have the Celestron telescope and a smartphone bracket on the night that will allow you to take the moon home in your pocket!
Toilets are available in the Tomintoul & Glenlivet Discovery Centre.
If the weather isn’t suitable on the day, we’ll endeavour to run an alternative session in the days following.
As we will be outside in March, please dress appropriately for cold and changeable weather. Please also wear appropriate shoes for wet, and wintry conditions.
