Join the team from Dartmoor Skies for this fantastic opportunity to get out and about under the starry skies of Dartmoor. The meeting point is at Gidleigh Village Hall from where you will be escorted up to Scorhill and then a short 15 minute walk to your observing location. You’ll be guided around the constellations and there’ll be telescopes for you to observe through including an opportunity to see the majestic planet Saturn. If the weather doesn’t play ball there’ll be talks in the village hall. Tickets required with some of the monies going towards the Dartmoor Skies charity. Wrap up warm, wear sturdy boots and take a red torch!
