Daylesford Organic Farm - Kingham
Daylesford, Kingham, Gloucestershire, GL56 0YG
Away from street lights and built-up urban areas, the natural beauty of stars can twinkle to their fullest potential. Join us at our COTSWOLDS FARM for an evening devoted to the skies above.
The evening will include a presentation from Robin Smitten, Chairman of THE CHIPPING NORTON AMATEUR ASTRONOMY GROUP and their members, followed by up to 90 minutes of stargazing, with a chance to see more through the telescopes as the CNAAG guide us through the night sky.
Please note this event is weather permitting. In the case of inclement weather, we will proceed with the presentation, but stargazing may not be possible on the night. We advise wearing appropriate outdoor footwear and clothing – wrap up warm!
Please note that this event has already taken place on 09/02/2022
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.
