Join astronomer Richard Darn at Low Mill Askrigg for stunning views of the night sky in the heart of the Dales. As part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park #DarkSkyFestival we’ll take you on a magical tour using powerful telescopes to spy distant galaxies, sparkling star clusters and fabulous double stars.
Plus we’ll keep eyes peeled for shooting stars. There will also be colourful talks to set the scene and we’ll let you handle four billion year old space rocks. Goes ahead in all weather. Suitable for adults and children over six years old. Bring warm clothing, stout footwear, torch and (if have them) binoculars. 7pm start. Warm refreshments and soup will be available and included in the ticket price.
