Join us for a stunning view of the early 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 and binoculars 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 biscuits. Goes ahead in all weather (unless conditions are dangerous).
If you prefer to pay by BACs please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org All tickets reduced by £1 each in that case.
Yorkshire Dales International Dark Sky Reserve
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 marvellous little village boasts over 2,000 stars overhead compared with a handful visible from a town or city. It is one of the starriest spots in England.
