Hunter’s Moon and upcoming Stargazing Event

There will be a fabulous full moon tonight, a Hunter’s Moon.

It will rise 20 minutes earlier than a usual moonrise and appear to be glowing orange. This is the first full moon after the autumnal equinox but because it appears on the horizon unusually soon after sunset, the daylight seems to last longer. In the olden days this allowed farmers and hunters longer to carry out their work, hence its name.

Next Sunday, 23rd October, we are holding our first ever Stargazing Event at Loch of the Lowes. This is a dark sky area and we have fingers crossed for a clear sky. However, don’t despair if it is cloudy, astronomer Robert Law will present a fascinating talk instead.

Please note – Booking is required for this event so if you would like to come along please call 01350 727337.

We look forward to seeing you then!
