Redmire, Leyburn, DL8 4ET, Yorkshire and The Humber
Come and enjoy an evening exploring the dark skies above the fabulous Bolton Castle with experienced astronomers from Go Stargazing. Following a short presentation you'll be given a laser guided tour of the night sky where you will learn how to navigate the constellations. Then observe incredibly distant objects such as star clusters, galaxies and nebulae using large aperture telescopes. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring a hot drink to help keep you warm!
This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 which runs from 14th February to 1st March.
