Join us for a stunning view of the spring night sky in the ultra dark village of Keld in Upper Swaledale. This event is part of the Dark Sky Festival and we’ll take you on a magical tour using powerful telescopes to spy distant galaxies and sparkling star clusters. There will also be colourful talks to set the scene in the resource centre and warm refreshments and cake. Plus we’ll let you try a virtual reality tour of the heavens. Goes ahead in all weather (unless conditions are dangerous).

The Dales is in the top three darkest national parks in England and Keld is a stunning vantage point to admire the heavens. This truly marvelous little village boasts over 2,000 stars overhead compared with a handful visible from a town or city as well as the Milky Way. It is one of the starriest spots in England.

Astronomer Richard Darn was part of the team that achieved designation of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park and helped launch Kielder Observatory. He advises national parks on dark sky conservation and has appeared on BBC Sky at Night and Stargazing Live and is a regular on BBC radio. For more visit darkskiesuk.org
