Chambers Farm Wood - Forestry Commission
Education Barn - Chambers Farm Wood, Market Rasen, LN8 5JR
Join astronomer Richard Darn for a stunning view of the Milky Way above the dark 900 acre Chambers Farm Wood. If you have never seen this river of light overhead this is the perfect time of year and the ideal location, away from city light pollution. We will also break out big telescopes to show you star clusters and galaxies far, far away, and keep eyes peeled for shooting stars. But we’ll start with a colourful talk to set the scene in the education barn and enjoy warm refreshments and cake! Goes ahead in all weather.
