Explore the incredible dark skies above Dalby Forest, set in the heart of the North York Moors Dark Sky Reserve, with the friendly and passionate team of astronomers from Astro-Dog.

Enjoy a stargazing session that includes a laser-guided night sky tour, learn about constellations, asterisms (patterns of bright stars) and how to find and identify various objects.

You’ll use professional astronomy equipment, including binoculars and large aperture telescopes, to view stunning deep space objects from stars, star clusters, and planets to galaxies and nebulae.

These events are ideal for families, beginners, and anyone interested in astronomy and offer a fantastic opportunity to escape the light-polluted skies of towns and cities.

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.
