On a clear night the big, open skies of the Yorkshire Dales let you see thousands of sparkling stars. Take a journey to explore our local star, the Sun, together with eight planets and learn about their moons together with the smaller bodies; the dwarf planets, asteroids, comets and meteors that complete our solar system. Along the way you’ll discover how to find The Plough, North Star, The Andromeda Galaxy, and Orion. This event is weather dependant so if it’s cloudy there will be space presentation (A Ramble Through The Solar System) instead.
This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 which runs from 14th February to 1st March.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 14/03/2020
