Night sky walk at Malham Tarn

Malham Tarn Estate Office, Waterhouses Settle North Yorkshire BD24 9PT United Kingdom

On a clear night the big, open skies of the Yorkshire Dales let you see thousands of sparkling stars. Join us to look at the night sky with an expert. Take a journey to explore our local star, the Sun, together with eight planets and learn about their moons together with the smaller bodies; the dwarf planets, asteroids, comets and meteors that complete our solar system. Along the way you’ll discover how to find The Plough, North Star, The Andromeda Galaxy, and Orion. This event is weather dependant so if it’s cloudy there will be space presentation (A Ramble Through the Solar System) instead. Please bring a torch (no head torches) and binoculars if you have them. Approx. 2 mile walk. All children to be accompanied by an adult. Booking essential. Sorry no dogs.
