Scilly Dark Skies Week celebrates grassroots astronomy and the Isles of Scilly’s wondrously dark skies.
By night, settle in for talks from world-class practitioners in the fields of astronomy and astrophotography, followed by stargazing through telescopes at some of the most unpolluted night skies in the UK.
By day, wander on foot and explore Scilly at your own pace before hands-on workshops await: build practical astronomy skills and knowledge – from choosing the right telescope to photographing the universe to exploring the ancient connection between Scilly’s earth and sky.
