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 November night sky with guidance from astronomer Howard Parkin following a two-course hot buffet supper at The Sound Café from 8pm.

With the November skies being the most clear, it is perfect timing to enjoy an evening with a difference. Astronomer Howard Parkin said; ‘The November sky is spectacular, with the majestic winter constellations of Orion, Taurus and Gemini rising from the East, and the Autumn Constellations of Pegasus, Andromeda and Pisces setting in the West. In Andromeda we have the magnificent sight of the Andromeda Galaxy which can be seen with the naked eye.’

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.
