Ballamoar Campsite - Isle of Man
Glen Road, Ballaugh, Isle of Man, IM7 5JG
The Isle of Man is well known for its amazing dark skies and this public star camp event is a fantastic opportunity to experience them with friendly and helpful local Astronomers! The event is free, whether you are camping or not, with lots of astronomical activities including telescopes to observe stars (both during the day and night!) and a marquee for talks and presentations. There will be telescope workshops and astrophotography demonstrations. Plenty to see and do both below and above the horizon!
Please note that this event has already taken place on 15/09/2017
