Keld Resource Centre
Keld, Richmond, DL11 6LJ, Yorkshire and The Humber
Join astronomer Richard Darn for a stunning view of the early spring night sky in the ultra-dark village of Keld in Upper Swaledale.
This event is part of the Yorkshire Dales Dark Sky Festival 2022, and we’ll take you on a magical tour using powerful telescopes to spy distant galaxies and sparkling star clusters.
There will also be colourful talks to set the scene in the resource centre and warm refreshments and cake. It goes ahead in all weather (unless conditions are dangerous).
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.
