Hound Tor Car Park - Dartmoor
Manaton, Newton Abbot, TQ13 9XQ
Join the teams from Dartmoor Skies and Dartmoor’s Daughter for an astronomical adventure in the heart of the moorland. With Venus visible in the sky, a young moon, and a host of other astronomical wonders to enjoy, this promises to be a memorable night. In clear weather, we will walk together to a beautiful location and guide you through the night skies and set up large telescopes so you can explore the night sky at your leisure. If the weather isn’t favourable, our back up plan will be tea and talks with slides in a nearby indoor venue. Booking required.
