Siblyback Lake Activity Centre - Bodmin Moor
Tremar, Liskeard, PL14 6ER

Join Caradon Observatory and South West Lakes Trust for an autumnal stargazing experience – a Dark Skies event at Siblyback Lake. Designated in 2017 by the International Dark-Sky Association, Siblyback Lake on Bodmin Moor is an International Dark Sky Landscape, offering a fantastic opportunity to see and learn more about the magnificent Bodmin Moor Dark Skies.

Following the success of the previous stargazing event in August, this time, the experts from Caradon Observatory will be looking into the death of stars. Clear skies permitting, there will be an opportunity to stargaze using the ‘big Dob’ and two refractors on EQ (computer controlled) mounts.

Prior booking required!

Please note that this event has already taken place on 12/10/2019

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
