Enjoy a guided interpretive stargazing opportunity in Kilnsey in the Yorkshire Dales National Park with Dark Sky Festival Guide Dr Chris Higgins.
On Friday February 21st and Saturday February 22nd guests and visitors have the chance to stargaze using quality telescopes, binoculars, and other stargazing equipment. Discover an evening of storytelling that delivers a personable, memorable, interpretive showcase of the night sky, the moon and neighbouring planets, deep sky objects like distant nebulae and star clusters, the Milky Way Galaxy, constellations, and nocturnal creatures.
Ultimately, we encourage people to foster their own personal connection with both the night sky and Wharfedale within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Join us and discover your universe!
This event is taking place in conjunction with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Dark Skies Festival 2020 which runs from the 7th February to 23rd February 2020.
