Colliford Lake Park - Bodmin Moor
Bodmin Moor, Bolventor, Cornwall, PL14 6PL
This “stay and gaze” event offers a fantastic opportunity to get away from our light polluted towns and off to a dark sky location where you can see and enjoy majestic star filled skies!
Timed to coincide when there is no moon illuminating the sky means that the skies will be at their very darkest — as such you’ll be able to see thousands of stars and the Milky Way arching across the skies!
Add to this a location that is (mostly) free from light pollution and the result is an amazing stargazing experience!
Take a pair of binoculars or even your own telescope (if you have one) and download one of the many stargazing apps on your phone so you can explore the heavens yourself! Go with friends and have your own “star party”!
Colliford Lake Park offers a special stargazing package which means you can make reservations at short notice, pay on the day and with no deposit required. To book simply contact the venue directly (rather than using any third party intermediary).
Please note that this event has already taken place on 09/11/2018
