Summer Stargazing in Dalby Forest with Astro Dog

Friday 24th May 2024 from 23:00pm to Saturday 25th May 2024 01:00am

Dalby Forest Courtyard
Low Dalby, Thornton-le-Dale, North Yorkshire, YO18 7LT

Explore the incredible starry 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.

This summer-time stargazing session is timed to start late in the evening to allow the skies to darken and includes a laser-guided night sky tour, opportunity to 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, including stars, star clusters, planets,  galaxies and nebulae.

Don’t worry if the weather is poor; you’ll enjoy immersive full-dome shows in their planetarium.

These events are ideal for families, beginners, and anyone interested in astronomy.

Please note that this has already taken place on 24/05/2024
