Join experienced astronomer Richard Darn from the Go Stargazing team for a stunning view of the spring night sky in the ultra dark village of Keld in Upper Swaledale. This event is part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 and we’ll take you on a magical tour using powerful telescopes to spy distant galaxies and sparkling star clusters. There will also be colourful talks to set the scene in the resource centre and warm refreshments and cake. Plus we’ll let you try a virtual reality tour of the heavens. Goes ahead in all weather (unless conditions are dangerous).

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.
