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.

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.
