OM Dark Sky Park and Observatory
Davagh Forest, Cookstown, County Tyrone, BT79 8JH
Join the friendly OM Dark Sky Observatory team for an evening observing Earth’s closest natural satellite, the Moon! Using the observatory’s 14″ Meade telescope, you’ll explore craters and mountain ranges that were first formed billions of years ago. The Moon looks incredible through a telescope, and this event comes highly recommended. Alternative activities and presentations will occur if the weather does not allow observation.
