Socially distanced stargazing! Dartmoor Skies will guide you through some of the special sights you can enjoy in the night sky. This is a free event, but we are asking people to book in advance so we can run the event in line with current Covid guidelines.
The team are offering 20 minute stargazing slots to either a household or a support bubble of up to 6 people. To reserve a time slot, please message Dartmoor Skies via their Facebook page or by email at [email protected]
The current arrangements may be subject to change if restrictions in the local area change. There will also be a wet-weather contingency plan. But it goes without say, please keep your fingers and toes firmly crossed for clear skies! 🙂
