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!

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.
