Description

The Galloway Gathering star party is easily one of the most friendly, accessible and enjoyable stargazing events you could go to. The location itself is stellar -- low surrounding horizons and light-pollution free skies enable you to see the Milky Way from one horizon all the way across the sky to the other, making any journey here more than worthwhile. Along with excellent facilities you're guaranteed a warm welcome whether you are a novice astronomer or a pro!

- Event is a hosted at a dark sky location such as a remote campsite over several nights usually around a new moon when the skies are dark.
