Night Sky at Keld

Saturday 26th March 2022 from 18:00pm to 20:00pm

Keld Resource Centre
Keld, Richmond, DL11 6LJ, Yorkshire and The Humber

As part of the National Sky at Night events series, local experts Paul Clark and John Lloyd will introduce you to Swaledale’s legendary dark skies – free from light pollution. We will start with a talk in the Keld Resource Centre, showing you photos of the moon, planets, stars, galaxies, Milky Way and even the Northern Lights. Weather permitting, we will then go outside to observe these remarkable features for ourselves.

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.
