Dark sky meander at Dalby

Dark sky meander at Dalby

Saturday 25th February 2023 from 17:30pm to 20:30pm

High Dalby House and Cottages
Dalby Forest Drive, Pickering, North Yorkshire, YO18 7LP

Experience the amazing dark skies above Dalby Forest!

First, there’ll be warming drinks and delicious hot food. We’ll then take you on a short, sensory night-time walk. Why? Because it’s fun! Walking at night is such an incredible thing to do because it makes you feel amazing and enhances your experience. You’ll essentially see and hear so much more. Teens will love it too!

This will be followed by an outstanding astronomer, who will point out a few things in the night sky. You’ll be able to look at celestial objects through telescopes too. But if it’s a cloudy evening, he’s got a few things lined up indoors, so you’ll still learn lots and be amazed.

At the end of this experience, your feel-good factor will be ramped up too!

This event is part of the North York Moors Dark Skies Festival 2023.

Please note that this has already taken place on 25/02/2023

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.
