Event description

Description

Join the Malvern Hills AONB Partnership for an evening with celebrity astronomer Will Gater to celebrate the recent designation of the AONB's first two Dark Sky Discovery Sites.

The evening will begin at Castlemorton Village Hall for a talk titled Chasing Darkness which will cover what dark skies mean to us, what they can reveal and how we must work to protect their treasures. Following that, if the weather is clear - we will take a short drive to Golden Valley, one of the AONBs two dark sky discovery sites, for a stargazing session. This event is aimed at anyone interested in astronomy and is most suitable for adults and children aged 10+.

Will is passionate about communicating the wonders of the Universe and was recently described as ‘’one of the current generation of ‘rock star’ science popularisers.’’ His recent tours have all been sell outs and we are delighted that he has agreed to join us here in the Malvern Hills AONB to tell us more about our wonderful dark skies and what we can see in them.

Will is an astronomy journalist, author and presenter. His work has appeared in New Scientist, BBC Sky at Night Magazine, Physics World, Focus and Astronomy Now, among others. He is the author of several popular astronomy books and is an experienced observational astronomer and astrophotographer.

If you are a fan of space, science or astronomy we highly recommend getting your tickets early to avoid missing out.
