Come and experience and unforgettable night under the stars in The Forest of Bowland!
We will be your guide taking you on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing you how to find all sorts of objects for yourself. There will also be powerful telescopes for you to gaze through, all operated by experienced amateur astronomers, who will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything! This event is suitable for ages 12 and up.
Did you know; from towns and cities we see just a handful of stars, but in the Forest of Bowland we could count 2,000 at any one time!
Please book early – places are limited.
