South Downs Dark Skies Festival Walk

South Downs Dark Skies Festival Walk

Friday 11th February 2022 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Bignor Hill Car Park
Bignor, Pullborough, West Sussex, RH20 1PH

In celebration of the annual Dark Skies Festival, Pied a Terre would like to invite you to join us for a gentle night-time adventure walk on the South Downs.

In May 2016, the South Downs National Park became the world’s newest International Dark Sky Reserve (IDSR), and this walk will be around one of the darkest locations in the park. A true adventure and one not to be missed!

With a hugely experienced and qualified local guide leading the way, venture out onto the hills above Bignor and enjoy the vast open skies from this stunning viewpoint.

This event takes place as part of the South Downs Dark Skies Festival 2022.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 11/02/2022

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.
