Valley of Rocks Car Park - Lynton
Lynton, Exmoor, Devon, EX35 6JL
Join Liz and Gary from Moor Wild Experiences to spot planets, star cluster, nebulae and distant galaxies through professional telescopes and binoculars.
Your meeting location will be the Upper car park at the Valley of Rocks (next to the toilets). Cross the road to the Cricket Pitch Triangular area (through a wooden gate).
Dress warmly, as spotting night-time objects can be a labour of love whilst we let everyone have a turn at looking through the telescopes. So bring a warm flask and someone to share the great joy with!
This event occurs during the Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2023.
