Malham Cove Dark Skies Walk

Malham Cove Dark Skies Walk

Saturday 26th November 2022 from 17:30pm to 21:00pm

Malham National Park Centre
Malham, Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 4DA

Come for a dark skies walk! On this evening, we’ll be doing the classic Dales circuit of Janet’s Foss waterfall, Gordale Scar and the epic Malham Cove at night.

Although a familiar and popular place during the day, it will appear very different at night. Walking when dark can be exciting and rewarding, leaving you feeling utterly buzzing and refreshed.

But this isn’t any old night walk. The location is perfect for a spot of stargazing. If there are clear skies you’ll learn about the stars, as well as deep time and the landscape you’re walking through. And you’ll find out how to ‘fine tune’ your senses through a little mindfulness so you’ll get even more out of the experience too.

The result? Your WOW-factor will be ramped up. And those worries you had earlier, may have disappeared.

Walk information

The walk length is roughly 5 miles and mainly on footpaths. You’ll be following recognised tracks and trails, however, there are steep as well as extremely uneven sections (the famous Malham pavement). A good level of fitness will be required.

Please note that this has already taken place on 26/11/2022

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.
