We have pleasure in once again collaborating with our friend and neighbour, Jane Green, a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, for what promises to be another evening to remember.
This is the night when the annual Geminids meteor shower peaks. A beautiful near Full Moon will illuminate the night sky but a preponderance of dazzling shooting stars will still be visible streaking above the Rathfinny landscape. Add to this a backdrop of the fabulous winter constellations of the Great Bear, Cancer, Orion, Taurus, Andromeda and Pegasus and it promises to be a magical evening!
So, we thought, why not celebrate with an evening of astronomy in the perfect setting of our Flint Barns?
The event will start with a festive Seven Sisters cocktail and short talk about Rathfinny’s progress and development. Our Flint Barns team will then serve a 3-course set menu and the evening of astronomy will begin.
Jane, a recent guest on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ show and fresh from presenting for Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Team at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, is a presenter, broadcaster, science writer and successful author. She is a natural, eloquent and captivating speaker who possesses that rare ability to communicate the complexities of astronomy in a warm and easy to understand way. So why not join us for an insightful and memorable night!
7 – 10pm
