An evening supper and opportunity to stargaze at one of the Island’s most dramatic coastlines and accredited Dark Skies location.

Participants can explore the wonders of the February night sky with guidance from astronomer Howard Parkin following a two-course hot buffet supper at The Sound Café from 8pm.

Howard adds;
“In February he nights are still long enough for us to have magnificent views of the Manx Night sky. At this time of the year the majestic winter constellations of Orion, Taurus and Gemini are dominating our skies, and the spring constellations of Leo and Cancer are rising in the East” 

Howard continued; ‘Obviously we are hoping for clear skies, in which case we will, after dinner, head outside to see the splendor of the heavens.’

If it is cloudy, Howard will provide an illustrated multi-media lecture following supper on what to look for in the Manx night skies over the upcoming winter months.
