Dartington Hall
Dartington, Totnes, TQ9 6EL

See the peak of the Orionids Meteor Shower at Camp Dartington. The event will run from approximately 9-11pm and will include a talk whilst you tuck in to a hot-dog and a hot chocolate (veggie, vegan and other dietary needs also catered for!). After that, and with full tummies and brains bursting with astronomical knowledge, you can settle in and get ready some for some serious stargazing and meteor spotting (fingers crossed!). Telescopes will also be provided. Why not take advantage of their stargazing sleepover with discounted tent pitches!?

Please note that this event has already taken place on 21/10/2019

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.
